Welcome to Class
Summer Term B
Our connector this half term is...
What Have The Romans Done?
Our focus for this term is the Romans and the legacy they left Britain. We will be finding out about Roman roads, baths, language, towns and infrastructure. Using a range of historical and modern day texts we will learn about how the Romans changed British life.
Pupils will develop their mastery of using different mediums in art. Following the Roman theme, we will create mosaics.
In geography we will be looking at ordinance survey maps, the meaning of symbols and how to plot direction.
In history we will be uncovering the timeline of the Roman Empire; how and why they invaded Britain.
In Maths our focus continues to focus on the four key operations of arithmetic and increasing the children’s fluency with whole numbers. We will continue to develop our understanding of 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 2,3, 4,5,6 ,8 and 10 times tables.
This half term we will continue developing our knowledge and understanding of fractions. We will also be consolidating our knowledge of time. We will use this knowledge to develop our reasoning and problem solving skills.
In science we will be investigating magnets.
Pupils will identify magnetic and non-magnetic materials and the effect of magnetic poles.
Children will take part in a number of practical activities which will involve predicting, observing and recording.
This half term children will create their own games using Scratch and 2DIY 3D.
Children will create computer programs using sequence and repetition. Laptops will be used to research the Roman era.
