Year 3 2018-19

 

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Spring 2 is all about the Romans.  We will be exploring the Roman era, particularly the invasions, what it was like to be a Legionary, Boudicca’s Rebellion and Roman engineering.  We also have an exciting trip to the Yorkshire Museum this half term to look forward to.  Here we will take part in practical workshops linked to this topic. To support this content, in Art we will research and explore Roman Mosaics and then design and create our own using tiles.

 

As usual we will continue to develop our mathematical understanding.  Our topics for this half term will be statistics, length and perimeter and fractions.  In writing we will continue to improve our narratives, non-narratives and accurate use of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

 

For more information on what we will cover this half term, please see the medium term plan at the bottom of this page.

 

If you have any queries please contact me via the staff@deightongates.leeds.sch.uk email address.

 

Thank you

Mrs Gibson
