Reflection in nature

Continuing their learning of light, Year 3 looked at reflections made by nature. The children examined pictures of landscapes which had beautiful reflections in clear and still water. They then designed their own reflective landscapes using watercolour pencils. We had some lovely scenic pictures. Well done Year 3.

Tricks of light

Year 3 were Scientists this afternoon, looking at how light reflects and travels. They made their own periscopes using cereal boxes and mirrors and were absolutely amazed at how they could use them to see around corners and over and under things. The children even went into Year 6, where they saw Mrs MacDonald, and were keen to explain how their periscopes work. What great enthusiasm and enjoyment for Science Year 3!

In the afternoon, our ‘bring-and-buy’ sale was a bit hit. Thank you all for supporting Children in Need.
