Year 3

The Roaming Romans

Our Autumn term theme, The Roaming Romans is a splendid start to the year! To research the history of Market Drayton in Roman times, the children will visit Market Drayton Museum, an Aladdin’s cave of artefacts linking back to the past, which the children were freely able to explore within the museum. We will also consider the concept of change linked to Market Drayton. The children will also carry out some independent research on The Romans using their computing skills and research skills to consolidate their “hands on” experience.

Children will also look at how soldiers have changed over time from the Celts to the Romans, to modern day soldiers.


By the end of the term, Year 3 children will have understood the concept of chronology through working together to create timelines, using both primary and secondary sources of information and taken part in discussions to advise Claudius on the wisdom of invading Britain.


It promises to be an exceptionally busy term, but hopefully a super start to their time at the Junior School.
