Welcome to Year 3

Dear Parents and Carers


The autumn term topic is What did the Romans ever do for us? during which we will be learning about Julius Caesar, the Roman Empire, and its effect on Britain. We will be visiting Verulamium (St Albans) to observe and explore Roman artefacts and learn more about the Roman life in Britain.  In Numeracy, we will be looking at Roman numerals, which will link closely to our topic.  We will also be consolidating the children’s knowledge in solving problems using different operations.  Children will also develop their maths skills through real life situations and investigations. .  In Literacy, children will link much of their work to their novel study. They will also improve on their grammar skills, spelling patterns and comprehension skills..


The spring term topic is Secrets from Ancient Egyptian where we will focus on the study of ancient Egyptian life and its influence on the western world.


The summer term topic is All things Bright and Beautiful where the children will have opportunity to explore the local area and research on different environments and plants which look beautiful but are also dangerous. We will visit the Royal Institute of Great Britain, where the children will be given the opportunity to be scientists for a day.


Science topics this year are:  Rocks & Soils, Forces, Light, Plants and Animals.  We will be developing our investigative skills to learning key facts and information about these topics.


We are working on our handwriting. Practise these patterns to help improve your joined-up writing!

Our school policy is that homework is sent home every Friday and should be returned every Thursday, signed by parents.  You will receive a report card at the end of term to keep you informed as to how your child is progressing at school.


PE takes place every week. Please ensure your child keeps their PE kit in school.


Please feel free to talk to us if you have any concerns or would like to visit us in class.


Yours sincerely

The Y3 team
