To finish off our Science topic this term, the children chose an opaque material to create their shadow puppets. They have learned that opaque materials do not let the light through them, therefore creating the strongest shadows.

Our Science this term has been about Light and Shadows.  We started off investigating how shadows were formed and how to change the size of our shadows. We had great fun using the torches in our darkened classrooms!  We are working towards creating puppet shadows - watch this space!

In Year 3, we have been learning about Place Value. We used practical equipment to show different values and then wrote these on whiteboards. Once we had mastered this, we were able to apply our new skills to answering different questions.
