In Science this week Year 3 have been investigating how shadows are formed. On Monday we went outside when the sun was out (we didn't have long!) to draw round the shadows our bodies made. Back in the classroom we used torches as a light source to make shadows from different objects. The children did really well at using some scientific words like transparent and opaque.
Tuesday 3rd. October
Year 3 went to Lancashire Archives in Preston today to research some of the history of our local area. We were all 'History Detectives' and we discovered some very interesting facts using the evidence from the archives. Stand by for the next instalment from the Year 3 History Detectives...
