Exploring Light and Dark

Posted on

This week the children in Class 3 have been exploring light and dark. We have been looking at different types of light sources and talking about natural and artificial light. This lead to some super discussions about the moon and whether it produces its own light, and if windows are a light source.

The children had a fantastic time exploring light and dark within the classroom; using different sources to create light and shadows within the dark tent, whilst Year 1 had a go at making the darkest den possible. They had to think about the thickness and material of the fabric to work out which would make it hardest for the natural light to get through.

The children had a super time, and can’t wait until the dark tent is out again.
