No Pens Day
To start the day, Year 3 were challenged to make a piece of paper as long as possible. To do this, the children needed to discuss ideas, choose and share resources, develop a strategy and work collaboratively. They enjoyed the speaking and listening opportunity but the real challenge was when the ‘silent communication’ timer started - no one was allowed to speak so the children used other ways to communicate! Amazingly, one piece of A4 paper of paper was measured at 12m 85cm!
Light and Shadow
We have been exploring the reflective properties of different materials. We used our light source to discover which materials and objects were transparent, opaque and translucent.
