 In Year 3 we follow the 5 W's and make sure that everyone feels WELCOME.

We share the WORD of God in all that we do and say.

We protect the WELFARE of our friends by thinking 'what would Jesus do'? 

We look out for one another and carry out the act of reconciliation to show that we care.

We WORSHIP together in class and in assemblies, sharing our prayers and thoughts with God.

Our Religion topic this half term is :

In geography we are learning where in the world volcanoes are found before looking at how and why volcanoes erupt. We will explore the positive and negative impact of eruptions on the environment, understanding the physical and human geography.

In English We are reading...

See the source image  Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balite.  

 This term's text links to our previous Romans topic and current Vocanoes topic, developing a depth of understanding. We will travel back in time to the days of the Roman Empire and join Tranio, the son of an actor, and his friend Livia, the baker’s daughter, in witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. Tranio, like most Roman boys, likes to watch whatever is going on: tradesmen selling their goods, ships unloading their exotic cargoes, politicians making speeches in the forum. But one hot August day a very different scene unfolds. The ground begins to shake, the sky to darken. People run gasping for air. Heading for the harbour, Tranio and his friend Livia hide on a boat and witness one of the most terrifying moments in recorded history-the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of their beloved city, Pompeii.


We will use this genre of historical fiction to guide children through the basics of writing a narrative story with a focus on grammar and punctuation
