A Special Treat For Year 3.

Year 3 had some special visitors today. Alfred Hough introduced his school friends to his chicks, who hatched out a few weeks ago. The children handled the chicks very well and we all remembered to wash our hands afterwards. Thank You to Mrs Hough for bringing the chicks into school.

Year 3 Science: What makes objects shiny?

Mrs Davies set Year 3 a Science challenge, to investigate what makes objects shiny?  The children held each object up and asked whether or not it was shiny. They decided that the shiny ones are not sources of light, since light is reflected off them and then enters our eyes. We can’t see them when there is no light or when it is dark.

Together we agreed that […]
