Friday 24th February 2012 – Light and Shadows

Filed under: Science,Whole School,Year 4 @ 6:01 pm

Year 4 began their new Science topic yesterday which focuses on light and shadows.  They began by making shadow puppets and discussed why the shadows were made, coming to the conclusion that our hands are opaque so they block the light, causing a shadow.  They then made multi-link monsters and used a torch to shine on their models to create a shadow.  They investiagted what happened when they shone the torch at different angles and what happened when they moved the torch towards the monster and further away.
