Pupils investigate the length of shadows during the course of a sunny day. They measure and collect results and place these results into a graph before drawing any conclusions.
PoS - recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object; recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes
NaG – pupils should look for, and measure, shadows, and find out how they are formed and what might cause the shadows to change
WS - using straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings; gathering, recording, classifying and presenting data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions; making systematic and careful observations; using results to draw simple conclusions
