Magnificent Materials in Year 3

Happy new year and welcome back to Newport!

In year three, our topic for this half term is 'Can We Fix It?'. This is a really exciting topic in which the children will become scientists to investigate the properties of various materials as well as rocks and soils. The children will then be asked to redesign the school's linkway using what they have learnt from their science lessons.

This week the children have been investigating the different materials of properties around school and have planned and carried out a test on kitchen roll for absorbency. Everyone really concentrated on making sure our tests were fair and, as a result, we found out that 'Thirst Pockets' were best for absorbing spilt liquid.

Here are some pictures from both classes in year 3.
