Maths Inspire Workshop

Attendance Reward with Mrs James

Year 3 have been investigating light and shadows in Science.  They have looked at opaque, transparent and translucent materials, and how light travels through them.  Here are some photos of the shadow puppet theatres they made during their investigation.

Year 3 children designed, created and evaluated their own string puppets using split pins, card and string.
