Mrs Churms is the teacher in Year 3

 

Already the children in Class 3 have been very excited by our new topic - Roman Britain. Over the next few months we will be looking at why the Romans invaded England and why they were so good at invading and taking control of so many countries. Through dance and drama the children are going to experience what it was like marching in a legion, and understand the commands shouted out in Latin! Already the children have made mosaic tiles and now know how tedious it would have been laying each individual tesserae to cover a large floor. We are later going to learn about Boudicca the Queen of the Iceni and how determined she was to stop the invasion. The children will also look at how ingenious the Romans were by exploring aqueducts, underground heating and roads.

 

On October 16th Class 3 are going to spend the day as Romans at our local Piddington Villa Museum. As well as cooking and learning about what Romans enjoyed to eat, the children will also investigate cures for illness, some of which are very strange! During the day they will have a chance to be real archaeologists too, will a Roman treasure be found?
