Welcome to Year 3.
We have been delighted with how the children have settled into life at school in their first few weeks and would like to thank you for how helpful you have been in adapting to new school routines in such difficult circumstances.
Below, we have introduced ourselves and given a brief overview of the wider curriculum for this term.
The Year 3 Team
We have three classes in Year 3
Class 1 (Miss Niles & Miss Sheehy),
Class 2 (Miss Cowan)
Class 3 (Mr Polowyj)
Our support staff are Mrs Kari (Class 1), Miss Dosanj (Class 2), Mrs Fox (Class 3), Mrs Battison (Class 3), Mrs Anson (Classes 1 & 2) and Mrs Jones (Classes 1 & 2).
Our Curriculum for the Autumn Term
Our key theme for the autumn term is the Romans and their impact on Britain. We will be investigating questions such as:
- Who were the Romans and how did they get here?
- Who were the key people in Roman society and how were lives different for different groups of people?
- Where does the Roman Empire fit into wider history?
- How does Roman culture still impact our lives today?
In addition to the Romans, we will also be covering topics such as ‘The Counties of the United Kingdom’, Andy Warhol (an artist study), the religion of Islam and sketching techniques for drawing noses and mouths.
Reading, online research or written work around any of these topics at home would be excellent in supporting your child’s learning at school. Please let us know if you would like any support with this as we would be happy to provide suggestions for places to start.
Questions and Support
Due to current circumstances, we are unable to host a question and answer session with parents at the start of the academic year. If you do have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher (or any other member of the Year 3 team) on the school gate and we will do everything we can to help.
