Shadow play

We had great fun exploring shadows on Tuesday afternoon. We made shadow puppets and then investigated using torches and different surfaces to see where we could see our puppets best. We discovered that we could make our shadows smaller or bigger depending on how close we put the torch. As it was a sunny afternoon we could make really big shadows on the playground. We had fun making shadow monsters, letters and played shadow tag. Some children discovered they could make their shadow disappear!
