This week we have linked our current English book to our science work to begin investigating how we can find Peter Pan a new shadow. We learnt about transparent, translucent and opaque materials and what happens to light as it travels towards the material. We looked at various materials and predicted if it was transparent, translucent or opaque before carrying out the investigation using torches and recording our results. We also found out how shadows are formed by opaque items as they block light from passing through. This means we as humans are opaque too!
