For this week's science lesson, we are looking at how light can be blocked to form shadows. There is an optional investigation you can choose to complete at the start to illustrate how light travels in a straight line and how it can also be blocked by objects.

There is also an investigation we would like you to complete at home by testing different objects/materials you can find at home to see if they cast a shadow when you shine a light at it. To do this, you can use a torch, a torch on a phone or tablet or any other strong type of light you have including even ceiling lights if you hold the object or material towards it. You must remember to stay safe at all times however so ask an adult to help you if that is what you are using.
