Year 3

The Roaming Romans

Our Autumn term theme, The Roaming Romans, is a splendid start to the year! The children start the topic by researching the history of Market Drayton in Roman times and look at the concept of change linked to Market Drayton.


Throughout the topic, the children will explore the expansion of the Roman Empire, how soldiers have changed over time (from the Celts to the Romans, to modern day soldiers) and the legacy of the Roman Empire. 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.


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.
