Shadow Play

Year 3 students had fun with their shadows this week. Firstly they used a drawing to show where they thought their shadow would be against a wall. Then we went outside and the sun shone on command as we explored questions such as “Can you make your shadow smaller or larger?” Can you change the direction of your shadow?” Can you touch your shadow’s head?” We also thought about where our shadow would be when the class walked out to the buses at the end of the day. When we returned to class students redrew their shadow on the wall recognising the learning they had gained from ‘playing with shadows’.
