Science Week

In Year 3, our current theme is Light, Reflections and Shadows. We have been exploring light and dark and looking at reflective materials.
 
During science week, we explored how we need light to see and that dark is the absence of light. We had to try and use our other sense to guess what object was concealed inside a bag. We then opened the bag and the light enabled us to see the object that was concealed. 
 
We also did an investigation, where we tried to find the best reflective material to use on a school book bag. We found out that a shiny surface such as tin foil would make a great reflective strip on book bag and enable children to travel safely in the dark.
