CROESO I BLWYDDYN 3!
Welcome to our Year 3 class page.
Class Teacher: Mr Williams

Welcome to our Year 3 class page!
Our topic this term will be
'Gods and Gladiators'
This project has a history focus and teaches children about the
significance of the Romans, who they were, where they came
from and their impact on the Celt population of Wales and
Britain. At the heart of this project the children learn how to
write narrative stories with an historical setting and develop
additional skills in persuasion and letter writing.
In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and
understanding by creating a Roman God for Jupiter’s council.
In this project the children will learn:
• About the historical events associated with the Roman invasion of Britain and Wales and their settlement in these places;
• About the culture, religion, buildings and way of life in Roman Britain, and how the settlement affected the Celtic people;
• How to use a range of sources to gain information about the Celts and Romans;
• How to present information and make a persuasive case;
• How to write narrative stories set in an historical context.
Class Three Visited Margam Park on Thursday and had an excellent time. Please click on the link to see some photos of the day.
Today Class Three held their own European referendum debate and secret ballot, to see if they wanted to stay in or leave the European Union.
David Cameron will be very pleased to know that the result was unanimous. Out of the 29 children voting, 24 of them voted to remain in the European Union.
I wonder if this voting will be reflected by the general public? Hmmm, the general public obviously didn't take note of Year Three's opinions!

This week the children have been learning about the origins of different foods from around the world and making plans for activities that we would like to cover in our topic this term. They wrote a persuasive letter to Ms Turner asking to sell fruit smoothies in the last week of term. In maths they have been working with money to make and add different amounts.
