This terms topic is light! We have had a lot of fun practically investigating key questions, making predictions and coming to conclusions! So far we have...
Investigated what light is, where it comes from and the difference between light sources and reflectors.
Identified and described the differences between natural and artificial light and been able to give different examples.
Identified what shadows are, how they are made, and why they appear to move and change shape.
We have discovered that...
Light travels in straight lines
Light sources are things that emit light, such as, the sun, while reflectors cause the light to bounce back, such as, mirrors or the moon
Shadows are formed when light is blocked
The size of the shadow depends on how close it is to a light source
The darkness of a shadow depends on whether the object is opaque, transparent or translucent.
