Year Three thoroughly enjoyed visiting Segedunum Roman Fort, where they trained as Roman soldiers and found it highly amusing when Miss Walker was dressed as a Roman soldier! They were so excited to be able to try wearing some armour that Romans would have worn and handle some Roman artefacts.
We have really enjoyed learning about play scripts in Literacy and are already excited to write our own! Working in small groups, we acted some out and have been busy analysing the features so that we are prepared for our independent writing next week.
We have built upon our understanding of Boudicca’s revolt against the Romans, considering sources to support our understanding of what she looked like in order to write our own description of her.
In Science, we have been exploring what light is and finding out about which surfaces are the most reflective.
We are super excited to visit Segedunum Roman Fort tomorrow, make sure you check our page next week to find out about it!
This week, we have been researching information about Roman life and the changes that they made in Britain using the internet. We used our information to write a non-chronological report.
In Literacy, we have built upon our learning about letters, planning and writing letters to Scorcha, a Roman charioteer in our class novel, to persuade him to help us train as a chariot racer – the children have certainly used their persuasive techniques!
We have been learning multiplication and division facts for x3 tables and will be moving onto x4 and x8 over the next couple of weeks. The children are developing their recall of times tables facts for the 3 times tables very well – they are definitely practising at home!
Thank you for all of your homework contributions already – the children have certainly been busy and have really enjoyed eating the Roman bread that has kindly been donated to school!
We are really enjoying our learning about the Romans so far! We began with a battle in the classroom, representing Romans and Celts to begin thinking about strategies and motives for the invasion.
We have learned all about reasons for the Roman invasion, understanding why the Roman army was successful and wrote newspaper articles about their invasion of Britain.
