Welcome to Year 3.
Reading Challenge Books
Hello everyone and welcome to Year 3.
Time travellin in Roman Britain
During this half term year 3 will learn about Roman Britain and the impact that this has had on Britain today. We will begin by understanding where the Ancient Roman Empire was and how the strength of their army allowed them to grow. We will then move on to learning about the invasion of Britain by Julius Caesar and Claudius. We will examine the fact that not all of Britain was conquered by studying Hadrian’s Wall and Boudicca’s resistance to the invasion. Finally, we will look at the legacy of the Roman Empire in Britain; including roads, the sewage system and writing. Our learning will be supported by a visit to Bruce Castle to examine artefacts.
Our English lessons will be linked to our topic with such diverse outcomes as a story set in Roman times and a play set in Ancient Rome.
For WOW day we will be dressing up as Romans and Iceni - so keep an eye out for ideas!
