Welcome to the Year 3 children’s page!

How did the Roman Empire Impact on Britain?

Around 2,000 years ago, Britain was ruled by tribes of people called the Celts. But this was about to change. For around a century, the Roman army had been building an Empire across Europe. Now it was coming for Britain!

Hold on tight as we journey back in time to ancient Rome and discover a whole host of foul facts about the RUTHLESS ROMANS, including what Roman soldiers wore under their kilts, how ancient Britons got their hair nice and spikey and why rich Romans needed a ‘vomitorium’. YUK!

So, why did the people of Rome decide to invade Britain 200 years ago?

What might it have been like to have been a Roman solider involved in such an invasion?

How did the Celts respond to this invasion?

How did the Roman Empire impact on Britain and the way we live today?

Well, these are just some of the questions we are going to explore in our spring topic. Let’s go back in time to discover how the ancient Romans changed the world and their legacy. Just take a moment to look below to discover what our learning adventure will entail…

We are Scientists

Year 3 –Exploring the topic ‘Animals including Humans’, we will investigate the human body, with a focus on joints and muscles and their functions. In addition, we will consider nutrition, comparing and contrasting modern day diets to those of the Ancient Romans and Celts.

Year 4 - Using a range of scientific skills, and English and Maths skills too, we will explore the topics of ‘’Sound’ and ‘Electricity’. Making links with music instruments and the ear, we will investigate pitch and vibration. We will also explore simple circuits, culminating in the making of our own electrical game.

We are Designers and Artists

Unfortunately, many of the artefacts of ancient times have not survived the years. So, how do we know about how people of the past lived? Using research skills, we will find out about the Celts and the Romans and will reproduce a range of artefacts based on our learning that will tell others more about this important period of time.

Be prepared to be immersed in ancient Roman culture and to use not only your art and design skills, but also your oral and written skills to ‘paint a picture’ of the past to help educate and intrigue others.
