Meteors – Year 3

Miss Serrano (Class Teacher)

Summer 2017

This term, we have been learning all about the Romans. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from History Off the Page, during which we had opportunities to use authentic Roman techniques and materials to create mosaics, broaches, skin products, clay pots, medicines and wax tablets.

We also experienced what life would have been like as a Roman legionary (soldier)

…or as a servant!

In maths, we have been learning about measurements and took advantage of the recent sunshine to carry out our learning outside. We examined a variety of containers and predicted which had the largest capacities. We then tested our predictions by using our measuring skills to investigate.

Throughout the year, we have also been learning to play the violin. We have learnt the correct way to hold the instrument and the ways which it can be played to create different sounds. We have become familiar with some of the Italian words used to describe these techniques, such as pizzicato (to pluck) and forte (to play loudly). We were very proud of our recent performance to our friends and family.
