Scientific exploration and mystery mayhem!

User Rating:  / 1

This week in Year 3, we have returned after our Easter holiday and thrown ourselves straight back into our learning. We’ve been having great fun!

In Science we have used our investigative skills to explore our new unit of Light and Shadows.

Despite the British weather being unpredictable as ever and challenging our plans to look at shadows outside (as soon as the sun appears we will be ready to run and enjoy it!) we used torches and resources around the classroom to generate some initial ideas about how shadows are formed and how they behave.

In our Literacy work, we have begun to look at mystery stories with links to our new topic of Castles and think about ways to create suspense, drama and excitement in narratives.

Continuing the “mystery” theme, we have also been launched into our new topic by enjoying an exciting treasure hunt in which we became history detectives to find out some key facts about castles.

Take a look at the video below to discover some facts about Motte and Bailey castles, the first type of castle to be built here in Britain.
