Busy bees in Year 3
What a busy summer term it has been for year 3!
Over the past few weeks we have been deepening our understanding of Egyptian history and our science unit on forces and magnets. In science, we had a workshop from a magnet specialist, where we explored magnetic waves and fields and how they are linked to earth. We also had a chance to see the world's strongest magnet in action, as well as a prehistoric rock that could attract metal!
In history, we have been out in London visiting the Petrie Museum of Egyptian archaeology and the British Museum. For both our focus was Egyptian artefacts and sculpture that could give us more information about Egyptian life. At both museums we had presentations by curators at the museum to tell us more about the objects on exhibition.
At the British Museum we also had a chance to look at the Rosetta Stone, a fragment of a large tablet that was key to understanding the Egyptian language of Hieroglyphic writing.
