Year 3

Spring Term 2

 

This term year 3 have been learning all about the Romans and what their invasion meant for Britain. Did you know, the Romans gave us underfloor heating, sewers, straight roads, stinging nettles and cats?! In art, we have made Roman doll sculptures. This involved us looking at how to draw figures in proportion, plaiting newspaper and using paper and paste. We had a fantastic day at Butser Ancient Farm where we went in a Celtic roundhouse and Roman villa. We made some Celtic-style jewellery, became archaeologists, had a go at spinning some sheep’s wool and made our own Roman mosaic.

 

In music, our topic has been ancient worlds. We listened to music from different traditions, composers and musicians and performed our own percussion pieces.

Spring Term 1

 

In year 3, we have enjoyed finding out fascinating facts about London and Paris through our English writing journey. We used the facts to produce information posters and fact files on each of the capital cities.

 

We have been looking at the features of maps and different mapping skills to describe our world and its features. There are imaginary lines called meridians that split the world into different time zones. 3S did a presentation about Asia to 3DL and 3DL did a presentation about South America to 3S. We all learnt loads!
