Year 3 make Shadow Galleries as part of special Science activity

Budding Preparatory School scientists got the chance to work as a group during a special classroom activity to further boost their ongoing development.

The Year 3 group at Rydal Penrhos took part in a practical activity session as part of their Science lesson recently, where they have been finding out more about light and shadows.

After learning all about shadows under the guidance of teacher Julie Woodthorpe and teaching assistant Clare Tebbits, they then descended on the Science laboratory to put their newly found knowledge into action.

During the session, the enthusiastic pupils managed to create their very own shadow gallery, which they devised using their own profiles and various everyday objects.

Science teacher Emma McDuff also brought in her pet rat Ivy as a special surprise for the year group as part of their practical work.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Year 3 group are a very enthusiastic bunch who throw themselves into every challenge presented to them, and their respective shadow galleries produced some marvellous results that they can rightfully be very proud of.

“Activities such as this as a hugely beneficial tool in their overall learning and it gives each child here at Rydal Penrhos the opportunity to get creative and gather even more information on a chosen topic with expert support and guidance from our dedicated and hard-working staff team.”
