LKS2: Snowdon


Welcome to Year 3!

The children have settled back into the routines of school and learning amazingly, what a great start to the year! 

Emperors and Empires

Our topic this term is Emperors and Empires!

In the Emperors and Empires project, your child will learn about the growth and decline of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. They will discover the absolute power of the Roman emperors and study the hierarchies of Roman society and the Roman army. They will study the first invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 BC and the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43. They will learn about Boudicca’s rebellion, Hadrian’s Wall and the Romanisation of Britain, including how Christianity came to Britain and investigate the legacy of Roman Britain in their local area.

Help your child prepare for their project

Arrange a visit to a living museum to learn about life in ancient Rome. During the visit, arrange for children to find out about aspects of everyday life, including jobs, houses, buildings, food and schooling. Encourage the children to record information gathered using notebooks or tablets.

Home Learning 

We hope that you will be able to hear or read to your child for at least 10 minutes a day.  With this newsletter, you should have received a homework with three activities to do over the term.

We will also have weekly times table challenges set by your child’s class teacher. Please ask if you are unsure of their username and password. (

Please make sure that your child comes into school in their P.E kit on P.E days. If you can put your child’s name in each item of clothing it will help minimise lost property.

Please keep an eye on the school newsletters, especially the ‘Dates for the Diary’ section for events this term.

If there is anything that you wish to discuss, please come and speak to your child’s teacher and then we can either discuss it immediately or arrange a mutually suitable time.
