Year 3 Trip To The Manchester Museum of Science & Industry
This term, Year 3 visited the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry for a jam-packed day of fun!
During lesson time, the pupils have been studying the topics of forces and light. To really bring this unit to life and enhance their understanding, they were given the opportunity to take part in a number of hands-on workshops; these included exploring the ‘Wonders of Light’ and further examining ‘Forces and Flight’.
In the ‘Wonders of Light’ workshop, the pupils learnt that: light travels in straight lines, it reflects off objects into our eyes so that we can see them and light can even be absorbed by certain surfaces.
The pupils engaged in many practical activities to see if they could work out the science behind each task; they even got to see their teachers take part in some experiments too!
An enjoyable, science-filled day was had by all.
