Week 2nd-6th November 2020
The children have returned to school ready for a new term of learning.
This week we have been looking at Roman Myths and have focussed on the Myth of Romulus and Remus. We have begun to work on writing our own story about how Rome was made. We are all using our imaginations to create exciting stories. 
In Science we have started our new topic of Rocks. We have started looking at the types of rocks and thinking about what we want to find out for this topic. We will be using forest schools to help us explore rocks further.
Week 9th-13th November 2020
This week Year 3 have been busy writing their own version of a Roman myth to explain how Rome was built. WE started by looking at the myth of Romulus and Remus.
In maths we have looked at the bar method for working out addition and subtraction. We found this very useful when we had word problems to solve.
In RE we have explored what we have learnt over the course of the 'Promises' topic where we have focussed on Baptism and what this means to us. We have also explored promises that have been made for school and clubs and the importance of these promises.
Week 16th-20th November 2020
Year 3 had a very exciting discovery on the school field on Thursday. There had been a team of Archaeologists that had found some amazing Roman artefacts. They took a notepad and a pencil with them and were reporters ready to write a newspaper article about the dig. 
We have made our own Jesse trees this week in preparation for Advent. We collected sticks from the field and then discussed symbols we could put onto our trees. They all looked fantastic and everyone worked really hard. Well done Year 3. 
Week 23rd-27th November 2020
This week year 3 have been looking at the colosseum in Rome. We looked at how it was constructed and thought about how we could recreate that outside in forest schools using the natural resources.
