Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

We are going to be investigating Shadows this week. You could choose to do 1 of the following activities: 

 

  • Take toys outside and draw around their shadow on the floor (using chalk or on a piece of paper).

  • Play 'Simon Says' with your shadow. What happens when you touch your head/ jump/ run?

  • Explore using your hands to make animal shadows on the wall? 

 

If it is raining or there isn't very much sun you could use a torch inside.

While you are exploring shadows think about the questions below: 

 

  • What do you always need to make a shadow? 

  • Is your shadow always there or does it go away? 

  • Can you make a shadow at night time? How? 

  • How can you make a shadow bigger/ smaller?
