Welcome to Year 3
This term year 3 are studying the Romans as our topic in CLJ. We have looked at how superior their armies were and how it allowed them to conquer so many lands. We are continuing to look at all aspects of Roman culture. Earlier in the term we made large Roman shields, which we designed to look like the real artefacts. 3M have also enjoyed making Roman helmets and mosaics as part of our homework project. We are looking forward to visiting the Roman museum in St Albans, to help us learn even more! In literacy, we are busy learning about Roman myths and poetry.
We have planned a cross curricular approach that has carried over into literacy, the class have shown great excitement and enthusiasm when it comes to Roman myths and will be writing some amazing mythical tales in the near future.
This term we are busy learning how to multiply and divide numbers, as well as how this relates to fractions. As a class, we also enjoy problem solving in maths, by using concrete resources to help us with the trickier mathematics. During science we are learning about magnets and forces. We enjoy carrying out investigations to help us understand more about their properties. Recently, we celebrated Chinese New Year by making dragon masks.
