‘Nurturing Individual Excellence’

Year 3 2022 - 2023



with Miss Forrester,


Mrs Kemp and Miss Dugmore




This term our topic is: 

The Romans!

As always, I am very excited about this topic & I can't wait for all of the fantastic learning that I know will take place! 

Why the Romans? 

For our children to understand modern 
Britain, a knowledge of the Roman 
Empire on Britain is essential. The 
children should develop an understanding 
of what the Romans brought to Britain 
that we still use today in our modern 
society. Children will develop their 
critical thinking skills and use their 
enquiring minds by evaluating the 
reliability and validity of different 
sources and information, considering why 
alternative viewpoints differ. They can 
they apply and transfer these skills to 
everyday life by being reflective about 
information they encounter. 


Our main focus texts are:
