 Year 3             Mrs Franklin          Term 2

Article 10- Families who live in different countries should be allowed to move between those countries so that parents and children can stay in contact, or get back together as a family. 

Welcome back Year 3. I hope you enjoyed the half term break and were able to relax and catch-up with family and friends.

 This term is based around our question of ‘Why do people invade other countries?’ and here is a bit of information to show you some of the exciting themes we will be looking at this term. As usual there will be opportunities each week for you to bring any objects, pictures or books, based around either a Historical theme, artefacts, research from the Anglo Saxon period. We will also be looking at objects that reflect our science topic for the term on Rocks and Fossils. 

Our theme for R.E this term is Promises and we will be looking at the promises and commitments that are made in our faith during Baptism and First Holy Communion and why it is important to keep those commitments.

Excitingly, you will be given the opportunity to learn more about the Anglo Saxons. Who were the key invaders, what changes there were during these times and how people settled in our land.

Keep your eyes open as we complete various activities we will post photographs on our class page to celebrate our achievements.
