Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

This is the children’s first step into Key Stage 2. We aim to build confidence and independence through working together and acquiring new skills.

Our Topic work this term has a History focus. The children will learn about the Stone Age, rise of the Roman Empire and the conflict with the Celts. They will also explore the effect the Romans had on Britain and the legacy they left behind.

In Science we will learn more about ‘light and shadows’, have fun with a shadow puppet theatre and ‘Be Bright, Be Seen’ as the Winter nights draw in.

All children now have their own string instrument in Music lessons. We are well on the way to our first concert in December!

Coming up:

· Trip to the Potteries Museum Hanley for a ‘Roman Workshop’. (Date to be confirmed)

· Roman Battle – Role Play History Lesson.

· K2M music concert at school – December.
