Year 3 - Trilby 2022/23

Welcome to the Trilby's Class Page!


Our teacher is Miss Maddocks and our teaching assistants are Mrs Peacock and Mrs Peake.

We are very creative in the Trilby class and our teachers love to use creativity to make learning memorable and bring learning to life.  

We care about our friends and look after each other in the Trilby class.  As well as looking after Cilla our school cat,  when she visits us every day, we have a furry friend who is a member of our class too.  We all work together to look after him.

07.09.22   -    Topic Launch

Today we launched our new topic "The Empire Strikes Back!"   Our topic is all about the Romans and what they did for us.  We found out about why the Romans invaded Britain.  We looked at the uniform and armour that Roman soldiers wore and we designed and made our own Roman shields.  We explored the Testudo formation that the soldiers used and battle and we held our own Romans versus Celts battle.  We had a brilliant day!

16.09.22  -  Orienteering

In PE we are learning new cross curricular geography skills.  We are learning to read and interpret maps and to build and create our own in a fun, energetic way.

20.09.22  -  Forest School

Today was our first Forest schools session with Miss Beard.  We had great fun exploring the woods and  learning new skills today.   Have a look at what we got upto.  We will be doing this every Tuesday so don't forget your wellies and old clothes next week!

23.09.22  -  Roman Roads

Today we have been looking at what the Romans did for Britain.  They built a network of roads across Britain hundreds of years ago, so that the soldiers had somewhere sturdy to march.  They built very straight roads across the land, roads which we still use today.  They built strong, well-built roads and we explored how they did this, by using different types of cereal and biscuits to build our own.

They dug trenches then began by laying large pieces of rock or stone flat, then stone and sand, next sale and cement, then a layer of large rocks or bricks that fitted together tightly.

26.09.22  -  Maths

In maths today we were looking at place value and representing 3 digit numbers using a place value grid.  We used it to explore the value of each digit in three digit numbers.
