Light and Shadow

Our Summer Term 1 topic is Light and Shadow.

In Year 3 children begin to fully explore ‘light’. Children will understand that they need light to see and that light is reflected from surfaces. They will explore shadows and learn how shadows are formed when a light source is blocked by an opaque item. Children will consider the dangers of looking directly at light-sources (mainly the sun) and how they can protect their eyes.
