Science

Light and Shadows!

In Science this half term we will be learning about light; how it travels, what a light source is, and what happens when objects reflect light.  We will also be looking at shadows and finding out how they are formed and what factors affect their size and positioning.  Do you know the words transparent, translucent and opaque?  Can you find out what they mean? 

Home Learning idea:  Look for sources of light around your home.  What objects are a light source and which are just reflecting light?  Make some shadows and play around with changing their size, shape and position.  What do you notice?
