Year 3RH: Blog items

Outstandings of the week!

Date: 24th Jan 2020 @ 8:10pm

Happy Friday!

In 3RH, we love to praise outstanding behaviour and this week we have had a couple of children on 'outstanding' for just that, so thought we'd share!

Well done to Casey-Leigh who - as well as always doing the right thing - has been working so extremely hard on her handwriting and consistently showing a resillient attitude! 

Well done to Lorenzo who, similar to Casey-Leigh, has tried so hard with his presentation of work. As well as this, he has become more of an independent learner and did excellent in maths where we were learning about fractions. Super job!

Well done to Amon who has been on outstanding twice this week! Amon created a brilliant non-chronological report on The Stone Age using all of the skills he has learnt in Year 3 so far and researching different topics in depth, creating a brilliant read! Amon was also the behaviour star this week. Well done!

Well done to Shawnakaye who was on outstanding for putting 100% effort into her Connected Curriculum work earlier this week. She was so invested in her work and produced a beautifully presented fact sheet which compared homes from The Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. 

Finally, well done to Thomas who worked extremely hard throughout the whole week! He worked independently with all his work including fractions in maths and a non-chronological report on The Stone Age in English writing. He was the behaviour star last week so it is great to see a positive learning attitude this week too! 

Well done to all our outstanding children! 

Welcome to the history channel!

Date: 13th Jan 2020 @ 12:27pm

Good afternoon and welcome to the history channel.  This is 3RH reporting on The Stone Age!

Today we acted as reporters and archaeologists. We interviewed each other on a specialist subject to do with the Stone Age. 

Stone Age research

Date: 13th Jan 2020 @ 12:23pm

We've been really interested in finding out about the Stone Age since coming back after Christmas! In particular, we have been looking at Stone Age houses/shelter, tools, hunting/gathering, cave paintings and clothes. Here are some pictures of us researching those topics. 

Biscuit Building!

Date: 10th Jan 2020 @ 8:05am

For our Connected Curriculum launch, we made Stone Age houses out of biscuits and icing sugar. It was lots of fun but also really tricky which made us admire how much hard work it must have taken to build houses back then without the bricks and materials we use today. 

Researching Indian charities

Date: 9th Dec 2019 @ 3:26pm

Our topic this term is India. During our RE lessons, we have been learning about Hinduism, Mahatma Gandhi and duties that Hindu's follow. We researched 3 Indian charities which support the 'Working for Justice' duty and made posters to promote them. 


Santa Bus!

Date: 9th Dec 2019 @ 3:20pm

We were so lucky this morning to be visited by Santa and his special elf helper! We sang songs and all got a present! How exciting.


Magnet Mania!

Date: 28th Nov 2019 @ 9:07am

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!

The Mighty Battle!

Date: 27th Nov 2019 @ 12:43pm

We reenacted the battle from the story of Rama and Sita and became demons and monkey warriors!! 


Anti-bullying Workshop

Date: 21st Nov 2019 @ 4:15pm

This morning, we participated in an anti-bullying workshop. We did roleplay and spoke about different types of bullying. We had lots of fun and acted out situations. 

Egyptian Visitor

Date: 3rd Oct 2019 @ 8:39am

Yesterday, Year 3 were greeted by an Egyptian visitor who told us some fun and interesting things about Ancient Egypt. We had a go at some Egyptian games as well as taking part in a fact hunting quiz! We even got to see the mummification process! If that wasn't enough, at the end of the day we competed in our very own Ravensbury Charriot racing! What a brilliant day!

Egyptian Neck Collars

Date: 3rd Oct 2019 @ 7:51am

In groups, we created Egyptian Neck Collars in Art as we were looking specifically at patterns and Egyptian designs. We had so much fun!

Place Value

Date: 19th Sep 2019 @ 1:39pm

In Year 3, we are currently practising place value. Use the websites below to help you practise at home.

How did the blossom become an apple?

Date: 22nd May 2019 @ 1:06pm

This half term we have been learning about plants and what they need to grow well. For our launch, we planted Cress seeds.

Our Roman Visitors!

Date: 4th Apr 2019 @ 10:13am

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!

Roman portraits

Date: 18th Mar 2019 @ 2:17pm

We worked with Mrs McAffer to produce some fantastic Roman portrait sketches!

Roman Banquet Launch

Date: 1st Mar 2019 @ 2:21pm

For our launch, we recreated a Roman banquet. We made laurel wreath headbands and ate food typically eaten during that time such as flatbreads, olives, grapes, pancakes, cheese, carrot sticks, apples and oranges. 


Rock Quiz!

Date: 26th Feb 2019 @ 9:09am

For our experience, Year 3 took part in a rock quiz! We researched information about rocks and wrote our own questions. We filmed each other asking questions on the Ipads and then we showed them to the other year 3 class. We really enjoyed it!


India Experience

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 11:07am

Our visit to a Hindu temple

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 11:05am

Year 3 went on a visit to a Hindu temple. We found out lots but we could also share our own information about Rama and Ravana as we have been writing our own stories during our India topic this half term. 

Indian food tasting

Date: 30th Nov 2018 @ 1:00pm

We tasted lots of different Indian foods such as poppadoms, nan bread, vegetable samosas, mango chutney and mint and cucumber raita. We really enjoyed the poppadoms and mango chutney!

We made Indian patterns!

Date: 22nd Nov 2018 @ 11:24am

This half term, Year 3 are learning about India and what it is like to live there. We have also been doing Indian artwork. We looked at lots of different Indian patterns to help us design and make our own. Look at the bright colours we used!

Times Tables!

Date: 14th Nov 2018 @ 4:31pm

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 canopic jars!

Date: 13th Nov 2018 @ 3:57pm

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.


Ancient Egypt

Date: 13th Nov 2018 @ 3:48pm

In Autumn 1, Year 3 learned all about Ancient Egypt. For our launch, we explored a tomb and found out how the Egyptians mummify their dead. We even turned our friends into mummies, explaining what we were doing and why! 

What lies beneath our feet?

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 10:03am

Year 3 have started a new topic, ‘What Lies Beneath Our Feet’, as part of our connected curriculum. We will be learning about The Stone Age and finding out how different rocks are formed. For our launch, we discovered different artefacts used by archaeologists to find out about the past and we also performed a cave man dance and made cave paintings.
