IWPS Little things Homework
This half term in Year 3 our topic is 'The Romans!'. Our class text is 'Escape from Pompeii' which will link our learning across the curriculum. During this topic the children will learn aspects of Geography, Art, DT and music. 

In Maths we are continuing multipication and division, where children will learn how to multiply 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers using the column method. We will also be consolidating our understanding of Money. It would be brilliant if you could encourage the children to use money at home to support their learning.

Romans - Immersive learning day

Today we had a day filled with Roman activities. We looked at where they fit on the timeline in history and found out how successful their inventions were. We had a go at building a successful model that would stand up using straws. We talked about how we had to work as a team for this to be successful- it wasn't easy!

Mosaics - February 2020

We found out that the Romans created mosaics using square tiles. We designed and made our own Mosaics. See what you think.

Deforestation - January 2020

We drew an image of an animal from the rain forest. Miss Hyde asked us to give our drawing to a partner and then told them to rip it up.We were not very happy about it so we talked about how this made us feel. We then thought about how this linked to the animals in the Kapok Tree story having their home chopped down. We talked about deforestation and imagined if we went home and all of the things we loved in our bedroom were not there.

Animals in the Rain forest - January 2020
