We couldn’t believe it when we saw a Roman soldier in our school hall!
We did some training to become a Roman soldier and learnt some Latin words. By learning these words we could turn left and right, standing with our feet together and then apart. We got into squads to help with our training. When we were being dismissed we learnt a salute as well.
All of Year 3 really enjoyed getting to know the Roman soldier and learning some new information.
Enjoy looking through all of our photographs to see what we got up to!
We have also been learning the dance which we will be completing as a whole school called Dance From The Heart.

Both Year 3 classes have now been to the local library. We really enjoyed walking to the library and were very lucky with the weather. Whilst at the library we had books read to us and learnt all about what the library can offer us (Lego and STREAM club). Lots of questions were asked and we got lots interesting answers. We were able to look round the library at what books they have. There was a quiz and we had to guess who the character was. Some of them were Paddington bear, the very hungry caterpillar, postman pat, the The Gruffalo, Mr Tickle, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Matilda, Willy Wonka and Harry Potter.
