Where Learning is An Adventure


Move over Broadway

To apply their understanding of everything they have learned in our light topic so far, children created their own shadow puppet theatres. We tested different materials to identify which made the darkest shadows and from this we learned that we needed to make our puppets from opaque materials. We explored changing the distance of the puppet from the light source in order to manipulate the size of the shadows. We demonstrated our school values by working respectfully as a team, ensuring that everyone shared their ideas and had an active part in the performance. Here are the results!
