We have been learning about light and shadows.  We investigated different shadows using a torch and a variety of objects.  We found that shadows are created when an object blocks the light.

We thought this video from Britain's Got Talent was really interesting. The dancer, Jonathan Lutwyche, moves closer and further away from a light source, creating different sized shadows.

We thought this was another great example of shadows. The dancers from Shadow Theatre Group dance behind a screen. The light source is at the back of the stage, which means shadows are created on the screen.
