We've been looking at shadows in room 7. Last week the children all went outside when the sun was shining and looked at their shadows. They all came to the conclusion that you needed a strong light to make shadows as when the sun was out they were very clear but when the sun went behind the clouds you barely saw them! They also said that there are no features on a shadow and their shadows showed themselves to be quite stretched! They also found that as the sun moves across the sky your shadow changes position!!!
