Class 2 Science: Light & Shadow


We have been doing a lot of practical work as we investigate light and shadows. We were lucky enough to have some bright sunny days so that we could go outside and find out about how the position of the sun changes our shadows. We also played lots of fun games with our shadows.

In the classroom (which we darkened) we used torches to create shadows with stick puppets. Over the next week we will be doing more investigations with light and shadows and we will be trying to use what we learn to predict what shadows will be formed when we have a certain object. The video below is a great demonstration of the different properties of opaque, translucent and transparent objects – it also has some good examples of shadows in everyday life. What shadows can you spot when you’re out and about?

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
