As we welcome in summer term, Year 3 have lots of exciting learning taking place.




We continue our chronological journey of British History by learning about the invasion of the Romans to England. We will look at evidence from the time, and answer enquiry questions such as 'Why were the Roman Army so successful?' We will also look at the effect the Romans had on where we live in the North West and look into any resistance against the Romans.




In Summer 1 we are learning all about 'Forces and Magnets'

Our Learning Objectives are:

      • Compare how things move on different surfaces.
      • Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.
      • Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.
      • Compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet and identify some magnetic materials.
      • Describe magnets as having two poles.


Our Christian Value in R.E. this half term is CREATIVITY. We will be thinking about this at all times and discussing experiences we have. We will share how we can serve God by always believing in ourselves and others to become a good citizen. We will talk about how we can can show our creativity when working and playing hard. We will discuss what it means and what qualities Jesus would like us to have in order to be a successful with this value.  

In class we will be learning: How do festivals and worship show what matters to the Jewish Community? 

The main aims of this units are:

  • Make sense of belief:
    • Identify some Jewish beliefs about God, sin and forgiveness and describe what they mean.
    • Make clear links between the story of the Exodus and Jewish beliefs about God and his relationship with the Jewish people.
    • Offer informed suggestions about the meaning of the Exodus story for Jews today.
    Understand the impact:
    • Make simple links between Jewish beliefs about God and his people and how Jews live (e.g. through celebrating forgiveness, salvation and freedom at festivals)
    • Describe how Jews show their beliefs through worship in festivals, both at home and in wider communities


In Art we will be enjoying some cross curricular work by creating Roman Soldiers sketching Roman Mosaics and Roman Shields, this links with our work in History for the term. 



In Design and Technology we will be making and decorating our own Roman Shields.
