Investigating light and dark

Owls have been looking at light and shadows this week. First, we looked at what we mean by light and darkness. We learnt that there needs to be some light to see anything but some materials / colours are more reflective than others. We tested this out by braving a very dark PE she'd to see if we could tee a flourescent jacket.

We also made use of a few minutes of unlight in order to draw round Charlotte's shadow. We later compated her shadow at a different time of day and noticed that it was a different size and was pointing in a different direction. 

Later in the week, we also carried out our own classroom investigations into light and shadows in the classroom and predicted whether materials would be opaque, transluscent or transparent.
