St Joseph the Worker

Catholic Primary School

Year 3

Welcome to Class 3's page!


After all the excitement of Christmas at the end of the Autumn term, the children all deserved a good rest over the holidays! They have returned to class refreshed and full of enthusiasm for the New Year!

Here are some highlights of the coming term:

We will be learning about the Romans, including their impact on Britain. Our class trip to Colchester Castle will allow us to learn more about Roman Life in Essex. We will be linking our learning to writing Non-Chronological reports and making stop-motion animations of Romans in Computing. In Art we are studying patterns in nature, taking some inspiration from William Morris. In Science and DT we will be learning about bodies and healthy eating and will get the opportunity to make our own healthy food!

We can't wait to share our tales of our learning journey with you!
