Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 3 and Team Azure

Your new teacher is Miss Paget

Your new teaching assistant is  Mrs Greatbatch 


This week in English, we have been looking at the true story of the three little pigs. We have also been looking at the features of a newspaper report. This week in Maths, we have been finding fractions of an amount including quantities. We used a bar model to find the answers. We have also been answering fraction related word problems. Next week in English we will be writing our very own newspaper report based on the true story of the three little pigs. Next week in Maths, we will be learning how to order and compare unit fractions and fractions with the same denominator. 


Stars for this week.

History Home Learning

Year 3 Project – Optional

Due 23rd March 2020


The Romans

This term we are studying the Romans.



You can choose any of these topics to research:


  • Roman Religion (gods and myths)
  • Roman Sports and Leisure (gladiators, competitions)
  • Roman Towns (e.g. houses and town planning)
  • Roman Homes (e.g. mosaics and food)
  • Roman Army (e.g. soldiers, road building)


1. You can visit the library and choose books that will give you some information on your topic or search the Internet.




Be creative and try your best!!!

Below are some websites

and hints that might help get you started!


Your project doesn’t have to just be written! Look at the some ideas below to help you come up with imaginative ideas about how you could make your project different from everyone else’s!


  • Roman Religion (gods and myths)

Can you make a fact-file about a Roman god, draw an illustration of them and explain how they might have influenced Roman life. You could also make a cartoon of the myth about a Roman god.


  • Roman Towns (e.g. houses and town planning)

Roman towns were extremely well planned, think about the different buildings found in Roman towns; baths, shops and houses, how could there be organised into a grid. Can you explain why each building was needed?


  • Roman Homes (e.g. mosaics and food)

Design a mosaic for Hoblett’s Manor Junior School and think about colour and shape, what patterns do you see around school that could influence the design? Could you design a menu to be eaten on Roman day, what foods did the Roman’s eat, and how was the food prepared?


  • Roman Army (e.g. soldiers, road building)

You could design your own armour for a Roman soldier, explaining what you would make it from, how much it would cost, and what decorations it would have on it. (This can also be linked to gods and myths).


Here are some website links that might help you with your project!
