This half term we will be learning about Ancient Rome and Romans and deepening our investigative skills to explore our understanding.
We already know that it was the Romans who killed Jesus when we learned about the Easter Story. Did they act with justice? We will explore the value of Justice and look at how we can make sure that everyone is shown equality and treated fairly.
We will consider how we can help those less fortunate than ourselves by taking part in the UNICEF Rights Respecting ‘Shoe Share’ as our act of courageous advocacy.
Today we enjoyed raising money for charity through our ‘Superhero Day’
Not all courageous advocates wear capes!
This week we have been learning about the Roman army. It was thanks to the success of the Roman army that the Romans managed to expand their empire to make it one of the largest in world history! The Roman army are still remembered today as being one of the best, most effective armies ever. Some of the ideas that Roman army leaders used are still used today.
We made links between the Ancient Egyptian hierarchy that we discovered last half term and discussed how different people can view justice and fairness very different than other people and that this can also change when people learn and understand more.
Year Three have loved researching the historical superhero Boudicca this week and have really enjoyed presenting their double page spreads in their own creative ways.
We really enjoyed coaching our friends through our peer feedback!
We’ve had great fun in our art lesson today, beginning our Roman coil pots in the style of Grayson Perry
We’ve been working hard to create some pieces of independent writing this week and have remembered lots of our Year Three writing challenges! You make us proud!
Year Three were excited to become investigators today. We used the information and clues, hidden around our classroom to create a fact file about Julius Caesar! We made lots of links to our values and discovered lots of positive facts that we still use today... but not everything was as good as it seemed!
