Year 3

Academic Year 2023 - 2024

Summer Term Topic - Emperors and Empires 

In the Emperors and Empires project, your child will learn about the growth and decline of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. They will discover the absolute power of the Roman emperors and study the hierarchies of Roman society and the Roman army. They will study the first invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 BC and the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43. They will learn about Boudicca’s rebellion, Hadrian’s Wall and the Romanisation of Britain, including how Christianity came to Britain and investigate the legacy of Roman Britain in their local area.

Knowledge Organisers

Each of our termly topics has a knowledge organiser. These are created to support our curriculum projects. They set out the key facts and information that children need to use and remember as they progress across the curriculum. Each knowledge organiser includes:

• Essential facts about the topic, laid out in easily digestible chunks.
• Key vocabulary, technical terms and their meanings.
• Ambitious levels of literacy including a topic glossary.
• High-quality images including maps, diagrams and photographs.
• Timelines and significant dates where appropriate.
• Famous quotations, if relevant.

Word Mats

We also have word mats which complement the knowledge organisers. These contain vocabulary which links directly to the current topic. This vocabulary is regularly referred to during lessons, which we also encourage the children to use during discussions and in their writing.
