Year 3 were making periscopes today in Science. They were learning about how light bounces from objects and especially with mirrors. They learnt that to make a periscope you must have two mirrors opposite each other at an angle of 45 degrees. They were all successful in their making and learning.
On Monday we were lucky to have a visit from Vivian French. She taught us lots of interesting things about how to be a good writer. Some of us even bought her books and she was kind enough to sign them for us.
We started this week planning our own mystery stories based on the book Ottoline and the Yellow Cat. In Literacy today we worked very hard to use our plan to draft the opening of our own story. We also made sure that we checked through our writing very carefully. There were some excellent ideas and Miss Bowkett is looking forward to reading the final stories later in the week.
