As part of science week the children in Alders have been learning about how we see things.
They used torches to investigate what happens to a beam of light when it hits shiny and dull surfaces and mirrors.
They looked at whether light can travel through transparent, translucent and opaque objects.
In groups Alders planned and carried out an investigation to find out the relationship between the height of a shadow and the distance of the light source from the object making the shadow.
They discovered that the further the light source was from the object, the smaller the shadow.
