Light and Shadows

In Autumn 1, we looked at light and shadows. We discussed and investigated the following questions:

  • What is a light source and why do we need light to see?
  • How is light reflected from surfaces and why is it important to wear suitable things in poor visibility in order to be seen?
  • How does light travel?
  • Why can light from the sun be dangerous and how can I protect myself?
  • How is a shadow formed and what happens to an object the closer or further away it is from the light source?
  • How and why do shadows change length and position over a day?
  • What do the words opaque, transparent and translucent mean?


Take a look at some of our work.
