Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is taught by Miss McCurrie
Welcome back...and I have never meant these two words more in my life as a teacher!! I cannot wait to have our Wybunbury family all back together and our Y3 class back on Monday. Normally, we have a big reveal of our new topic but as we all know, this term we will finally be learning about...The Romans! There is great excitement around this topic after missing out in Year 2 due to lockdown 1 and then again in Year 3 due to this lockdown! I am just as excited as you all are to teach you all about the Romans this term.
We will be reading lots of non fiction books to find out information about what life was like in Roman times. We will start our big art by learning about the Roman army and will make some fantastic Roman shields.
Alongside our non fiction reading, we will be reading the story "I was there...Boudica's Army" by Hilary McKay. This story is a fast-paced and fascinating account of a young girl in the Iceni tribe in AD 60. As Queen Boudica leads her people to march on Roman-occupied Colchester, young Kassy's beloved pony, Honey, is stolen away and taken to war. Will Kassy be able to find her and bring her home safely? This first-hand account of a child's experience of life in ancient Britain really helps to bring to life our learning. Lots of books will support our learning journey this term about the Romans and here are some of the key books we will be reading:
The Usborne Official Roman Soldier's Handbook
Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit
Meet the Ancient Romans by James Davies
The Street Beneath my Feet by Charlotte Guillain
