Year 3 Homework - 21st June 2019

Hello Year 3!

Well done to all the children who took part in representing St. Augustine's in the Kent School Games on Thursday -  you should all be very proud of your achievements and for doing so well! Another well done to the other members of the class who took part in our Corpus Christi mass and made it a success; we wish good luck to the children who are receiving their First Holy Communion this weekend and can't wait to hear all about it on Monday!
This week we've been learning about time in maths, beginning with the days in each month and hours in a day, then moving on to telling the time to 5 minutes and the nearest minute. In English, we've been learning the model text for the story 'Escape from Pompeii' and read through the script for our KS2 'Olivia' musical. In science, we carried out an investigation to find out whether the roots of a plant grow over time, involving digging up weeds from the garden and writing up our predictions ready to measure the growth over the next few weeks. 

The most exciting part of our week was a sudden 'invasion' from the Year 5 class, who came marching down the corridor and announced that they were taking over our classroom! They tore down our 'class rules' and displayed their own rules on the wall, stole our materials and threatened to take some of us away! After they had left, we linked the attack to the Roman invasion of Britain, and began to research the spread of the Roman Empire and answer the question: why did the Romans invade Britain?
History - what can you find out about Roman soldiers?
To follow on from our learning this week, I'd like Year 3 to create an A4 poster with facts about Roman soldiers - including drawings/images and writing!
You might want to include the following subheadings:
Army Training
Fun Facts!
‚ÄčThese websites could help with your research, and the Horrible Histories books and series are also a fun way to learn more about the 'Rotten Romans'!
Reading - at least 4 times a week with signatures in your reading record.
Times Tables - play Times Tables Rockstars to work your way up the leaderboard and become superstars at knowing your multiplication and division facts!
Spellings - learn your new spellings to be tested next Friday.
Singing - practice the songs from the 'Olivia' musical production we will be performing next month.
Have a great weekend everybody!
