In Autumn 1 in Science we are foucsing on light. Some of the main facts we will be exploring will be:

-recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light

- notice that light is reflected from surfaces

-recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes

-recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object

-find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.


In Science we cover the following topics: Light, Forces and Magnets, Animals including Humans, Rocks and Plants.

We love to work scientifically in Year 3 which means that we like to ask questions about the world around us and make observations and predictions.
