STEM Day - light and shadow

11th July 2023
Staff had organised a special STEM day focused on light and shadow to tie in with our current science topics.  The children investigated how shadows grow or shrink and move  throughout the day (and why), made sundials and created shadow theatre shows based on simple counting songs.  Nursery came to be the audience and the performances were excellent. 
 The children were able to develop and practise many skills over the day - including careful measuring, keeping tests fair, reasoning about their findings, using a compass to position their sundials as well as storytelling and crafting mini-theatres and shadow puppets.
