Our science focus for this half term is 'Light and Dark' . We have been learning about light sources and shadows. We have also learned new vocabulary such as 'opaque' and 'translucent'.
This week we have been investigating the size and shape of shadows by using unifix cubes and torches. We made the classroom really dark by closing all of the blinds and turning off the lights and used our torches to make shadows.
We investigated how to increase the size of our shadow by making a prediction and tested our hypothesis using the equipment provided.
Look at the photographs of our experiment :)
