Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage.

Our theme for this half term is 'The Romans'


In history we will be learning all about the Roman way of life and how they invaded Britain in 43AD. The children will also develop their understanding of the differences between the Celt and Roman way of life.  In design technology the children will design their own Roman chariot and in music they will learn about Roman music and discuss musical 'mood'.  In Science the children will be learning about forces and carry out experiments learning how to measure forces as well as finding out about magnets.



. This half term we will be focussing on the book 'Leon And The Place Between'.



This is a lovely book full of descriptive language and beautiful illustrations. Through this book we will learn to extend our sentences with subordinate conjunctions, subordinate clauses and extended noun phrases.

In year 3 we will have a strong focus on handwriting and spelling.  A list of year 3 words that the children need to learn to spell can be found at the bottom of the page in 'Files to download'.                     




In maths the children will develop their ability and knowledge in the following concepts.  Through a mastery style of teaching the children will develop their fluency in these areas as well as an ability to reason and problem solve using this knowledge.

The children will learn:
