Science

We will carry on with your Light topic in Science this week. You are going to explore shadows today and will think about how shadows are made using opaque objects. In your activity today you will think about how  a shadow is formed and investigate shadows themselves, thinking about the way they change size and the patterns they make. Follow the instructions on the slides, then complete the worksheet.
