Shadows in Science

This half term, we have been learning about light and dark. We were investigating whether a shadow could change size and if so, how? To make it a fair test, we used the same torch and object but changed the distance of the light from the object…what do you think? Does a shadow get bigger or smaller when an object is closer to the light? How does this happen?

Fractions challenge…

We are learning about fractions.  When we added two fractions together, we noticed that we add the numerator (top number) but not the denominator (bottom number).  Why is this?  For example: 2/5 + 1/5 = 3/5.  3 house points for an accurate explanation with an example.
