LKS2 – C4 and C6 – Science

Today in Science, we explored light and shadows. First, we looked at the words, ‘opaque’, ‘translucent’ and ‘transparent’. Then we discussed how we thought shadows were made. We then got some torches, turned off the lights and explored different questions linked with shadows such as, ‘What happens to the object when you move the torch?’, ‘What happens if you drew detail on the card?’ and ‘Which material creates the darkest shadow?’. We discussed our findings with each other and then made our own shadow puppet show and performed these. These included, The Ginger Bread Man, The 3 Bad wolves, The Chinese New Year story and our own unique stories!
