Year 3 went on a trip to St Helens to visit the World of Glass, as part of their science studies on Materials. 3R were group 2 and we braved the cold to explore the tunnels and swing pit of the old Victorian cone building. After this we painted glass and learned about the properties of glass, trying to guess what objects were and how colour had been added etc. After a wonderful interactive film show we watched the professional glass blowers create a piece of artwork especially for APS. The boys and parents had a great time, coming away with a beautiful glass tumbler and many happy memories and knowledge.
