Class 8- Dosbarth 8
Our main topics during the Spring term in Year Three are ‘Cymru’ and ‘The Romans’. The children will be planning what they would like to find out about these topics and complete various activities in order to develop their independent learning skills and topic knowledge. We will also be having a ‘Roman’ day later on in the term where the children will have the opportunity to find out about life during the Roman period of time in history. They will be participating in various hands-on activities such as finding out what the Romans would wear, what they would eat, where they lived and also comparing the life of both the Iron Age Celts and the Romans.
In our English work, the children will be looking at a range of fairy tales and Welsh myths and legends. We will be continuing with our handwriting and Guided Reading sessions as well as our spelling group work on a Monday.
In Science the children’s work will focus on forces where there will be plenty of opportunities for hands on investigations.
