    Shadows

    We have been looking at light and shadow.

    The children have been exploring how and why shadows change during the day.They carried out an investigation marking out their shadow positions at different points during the day.The children were fascinated to see their shadows ‘move’ over time, and we discussed the position of the sun and how high or low it was in the sky.

    Does the sun move across the sky?!
