Bromstone Primary School

Term 3 - Where do leaders come from?


This term we will be writing myths in keeping with our Greek theme! We will explore the story of King Minos and the Minotaur and then write our own. We will then transport ourselves back in time and write a diary entry from the perspective of a spectator at a gladiator battle in Athens! We will continue to work on the Y3 statutory spellings as well as consolidating spelling rules from Year 2- there will be weekly spellings for your child to practise! Theseus and the Minotaur (Greek Myths)



In maths, we will be continuing with multiplication and division. We will recap strategies learnt and then move on to multiplying and dividing 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using visual representations (not the formal method just yet!) We will then move on to length and perimeter. In addition to this, we will also be continuing to learn out 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well as consolidating the 2s, 5s and 10s. 

Wider Curriculum

Our topic this term is ‘Ancient Greece’ where we will be transported back in time to explore life in Ancient Greece. We will have an exciting ‘WOW day’ where children will be invited to dress and up fully emerge themselves into Greek culture by learning about the way of life then and even trying some Greek food! The main elements will be history -looking at significant events and people (such as Alexander the Great) and some geography, specifically map work. Richborough will be learning essential swimming skills at Stacey’s Swim School whilst Lewes await their turn next term and continue to plug away at computing, learning about branching databases.
