Glorious sunshine casts curious shadows. What is a shadow? Do you like the dark? It’s time to explore night and day, and light and dark in this project about shadows.
This half term, we’ll head outside to go shadow hunting, exploring our environment to find and make shadows.
Back in the classroom, we’ll investigate light by using shapes, torches and kaleidoscopes, discovering which materials light does and doesn’t shine through.
On a journey around school, we’ll spot different light sources and trace around the shadows outside.
In our literacy lessons, we’ll write about the different things we do in the day and at night.
Using our mathematical skills, we’ll explore opaque and translucent shapes and make patterns.
Getting creative we’ll try out some shadow puppetry, make lava lamp sensory bags and craft beautiful stained glass windows. We’ll also share our experiences and feelings about the dark.
