Pupils will develop their mastery of using different mediums in art. Following the Roman theme, we will create mosaics.

In history we will be uncovering the timeline of the Roman Empire; how and why they invaded Britain
Our focus will continue to be on increasing the children’s fluency with whole numbers and the four key operations, (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) including number facts and the concept of place value. By the end of year 3 it is expected that the children will be able to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
