Celebration of Work
In Year 3 we have been focussing on the John Lewis Christmas advert, as we begin to develop our use of inverted commas and create a dialogue that may have occurred between Edgar and Ava! We also began to round off our Roman topic learning as we explored a range of different Roman artefacts and tried to determine their uses!
In Year 3 we are using our Roman shield designs from last term as we work together to create a model of a shield. Once the children have made their shield we will create an effective set of instructions in our English lessons. In our Broader Curriculum lessons we have begun to look at Julius Caesar and the effect he had on the Roman Empire.
In Year 3 we have started to look at different forms of Roman entertainment. Children have been looking at images of artefacts to encourage inquiry. The first form of entertainment we are focussing on is Chariot Racing, where the children are beginning to create their own commentary for a Roman Chariot Race!
In Year 3 we have been looking at mythical creatures that appear in Roman Myths. The children have created their own mythical beasts, piecing together parts of common animals. We will use these animals to inspire our character descriptions in English.
This week, Year 3 began to look at non-chronological reports in our English sessions. Children were able to independently research and gather information relevant to the Roman army, in order to create an informative piece of writing!
