Year 3

Class 3’s project for the summer term is ‘How did the Romans change the world?’

We have already begun with our amazing hook days where we have made Roman shields, sculpted Roman busts from clay, made roman standards for battle, crushed grapes with our feet to make ‘wine’, collaged a roman soldier and Iliona- the main character in our shared reading novel. Somehow we even had time to relax and soak our feet in the roman spa! We are really looking forward to our trip to Wroxeter- a former Roman city to find out more about how the Romans lived in Britain. As well as this trip we are very lucky to be taking part in an art workshop at the New Arts Exchange where we will be creating portraits once we have viewed the amazing work of artist Hassan Hajjaj.

We continue to experience our ‘50 things to do’ and will shortly be handling a scary beast when our visitor brings in some amazing creatures for us to meet!

We are starting to see some amazing project homework coming in to class. Please remember that your child must complete 6 Project Homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.

We would love to see lots of reading medals in Class 3. Your child will get a certificate and a medal for reading at home – a bronze medal for reading 50 times at home, a silver medal for reading 125 times at home and a gold medal for reading 250 times at home. Please listen your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record.

Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings and passing their times table test.

Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school the following Thursday.

PE lessons are every Tuesday this term, so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school each week, including outdoor trainers and a hoody if needed.

Please can we remind you to make sure that your child is wearing sun cream for school as the weather improves and has a sun hat for break, lunch and P.E.

If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to come and see us.

Thank you,
