This half term our topic will continue to be ‘Invasion’ which focuses on the Roman empire and its impact on Britain. We will also continue with a scientific topic on plants and hopefully look at magnets when we finish studying plants.


 In literacy we will be finishing work on Escape from Pompeii and then writing an information text on how to be a Roman soldier. We will then be using the Roman invasion of Britain to inspire some speech writing, letter writing and factual writing.


 I will be teaching the class apart from on Tuesday afternoons where Mr Thomas will be teaching RE, PSHCE and PE. 


 Our PE lessons are still on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon so please ensure your child has their PE kit which must be a white t-shirt, blue/black shorts and a separate pair of trainers suitable for sport. Please note baseball trainers and pumps are not allowed and I would also advise providing a water bottle for your child to bring to school. 


 Guided Reading is still every Monday morning and homework will be set each week. The task must be completed for the next Monday. It would be greatly appreciated if you can help or check that your child has completed the weekly task. 


 We will continue to practice times tables and hold a weekly test. It is an expectation of the National Curriculum that children should know multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times-tables at the end of Year 3. Which is building upon their 2, 5 and 10 times-tables learned in Year 2. It would be greatly beneficial to your child if you can practice times-tables as often as possible.
