In DT we have been designing and creating our own lighthouses. We researched designs and collected them. Next, we choose our final design and sketched it. We then painted the lighthouse. We used bulbs, wires, switches and batteries to create a circuit with a light.

In science, our current topic is light. We recently investigated which materials reflect light well. We made light reflectors and used torches to test different materials. We discovered a CD and tin foil are great at reflecting light whereas paper doesn’t.

On Monday, we discovered this in our classroom. We aren't positive what it is or who has left it but we do have a main suspect. We have started to read a new book called The Abominables to see if we can discover who it might belong to.

Good Morning Year 3!

Can you believe this is the last week of the school year? I can't quite believe how quickly the past few months have gone; who would have thought this would be the way our year would end?

For Padlet this week I am going to update sentence of the day and fluent in five each day. I have also put on your spellings, a comprehension and some maths questions. Also, there are a few transition activities to prepare you for going into Year 4!

Here is our last Padlet for this year!
