Year 3 visited the Roman Museum in Chester, immersing themselves in the rich history of ancient Rome. They explored artifacts, enjoyed interactive exhibits, and learned about Roman culture. The pupils re enacted the life of a Roman soldier. They wore costumes, learned about training and duties, and practiced drills.
Light and Shadows
Year 3 children enjoyed their Science topic about Light. They made their own shadow puppets and used these to explore how shadows are formed. They also learnt about reflection and created their own secret messages, the meaning of which was revealed with a mirror.
Year 3 children were developing their pencil sketching and shading skills by observing closely a wide range of landscape pictures.
Year 3 have been learning about what a census is in their history lessons, linking to events in Jesus' time. They even took part in their own Lower School census, finding out about the families and jobs of Lower School. We were amused that two Reception children described their father’s jobs as ‘washing up!’. Teachers were impressed with the analytical skills of Year 3 as they interpreted the 1911 census.
