Welcome to Seahorses
Teacher: Mr Escott
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Nevers & Mr Hunt
Well done to Mason for being the first member of Seahorse Class to be given a Headteacher's Award this year! Mason showed some incredible aspiration to go above and beyond what was expected of him when retelling the Islamic Creation Story. His work has rightly been put up on our Wonder Wall for all to see!
We had a fantastic time this afternoon investigating what happens to a shadow when an object moves closer to, or further from, a light source.
The children made shadow puppets and tested their theories by moving them around in the space between the torch and the card. We even had some groups making up shows to entertain us with!
Why not ask the children what happens when an opaque object gets closer to a light source? How does its shadow change? What if it gets further away? Why is this?
