For our first topic children will recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light. They will notice that light is reflected from surfaces and that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object.
For most of this topic children will need a torch.
Due to the current COVID19 climate, sharing equipment is tricky as we will need to sanitize between uses. If you have a torch at home - please could you send it to school with your child for them to keep in his/her own tray. Please ensure the torch is labelled with your child's name. MANY THANKS.
