Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for Autumn Term 2023 is......

'How can we get a picture of the past?'

This Autumn, Year 3 will be asking, 'How can we get a picture of the past?' We will become history detectives, examining a range of historical sources from the Tudor period and exploring what they reveal about life at that time. We will re-enact the Battle of Bosworth to find out how and why the Tudor period began, look at Hans Holbein’s portraits and the effect they had on history, use Tudor maps to journey around the world with Sir Francis Drake and invent machines to attack castles.


To share what we have learnt, the children will be hosting a learning fayre to teach their friends and families all about the Tudors.


Home Learning 

Every two weeks the children will be introduced to a new home learning challenge. These will be shared with you on Class DoJo. Each question will have a range of suggestions as to how they can share their understanding of each. They can select any way of demonstrating their understanding.


Across the term we hope that your child is curious enough to extend and deepen their learning and understanding further. Every two weeks each class will select a winning piece of work that shows innovation, creativity, depth of learning or original thinking.  


Please share any of their work on Class DoJo or bring into school with them.
