Yesterday, we tested the strength of different magnets and saw how strong they were! We then did two experiments:
1:How many paper clips the magnet could hold flat,
2:How many paper clips the magnet could hold dangling in a line.
Some were stronger than others. We had great fun testing this out!

Yesterday, Year 3 were greeted by an Egyptian visitor who told us some fun and interesting things about Ancient Egypt.

For our Roman experience, we were lucky enough to meet 2 Roman soldiers! We found out what Roman soldiers and Celtic warriors wore and we got the chance to try on some Roman armour. It was really heavy! One of them even led us into battle and taught us different battle formations! It was a battle between the boys and girls. Girls were not allowed to join the Roman army but the girls at Ravensbury won!

This year at Ravensbury we are thinking about developing our times tables. We will be practising our tables in a variety of different ways. One of the ways we can practise is by using a range of online games and activities.
Click on the links below to practice! All of the activities work on a laptop, some may not work on a tablet.
In Year 3, we are learning the 3, 4 and 8 times tables and revisiting the 2, 5 and 10 times tables from Year 2.

We made some fantastic canopic jars! These were used by the ancient Egyptians for the safekeeping of particular human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver, all of which, it was believed, would be needed in the afterlife. There was no jar for the heart: the Egyptians believed it to be the seat of the soul, and so it was left inside the body.

We were surprised to find out that students sit on the floor to do their learning!
