Investigating how sound travels in the spring term

Science Day 27th January 2020

Year 3/4 loved learning all about light.  They investigated how shadows are formed using shadow puppets and they designed their own emojis using tracing paper, reflecting their designs on to a surface using a torch.  They also investigated refraction using straws in water.  They then created their own 'sunset in a glass' by adding milk to the water and shining a torch on the cloudy mixture from different angles.  They observed the change in colour and linked this to what occurs during a real sunset.  

Rocks and their properties - We investigated soil permeability to find out which would be best to build a pyramid on!

'From tiny acorns, great forests grow.'
