Investigating Shadows in the Sun ☀

This week, Year 5 have been investigating how the shadow of an object changes during the course of the day. They worked collaboratively in pairs to measure each other’s shadow at specific times during the day: 10:00am, 12:00pm and 2:00pm. They learnt that the shadow changes length during the course of the day as a result of the position of the sun in the sky. The higher the sun is in the sky, the shorter the shadow.

Another week of fabulous science work Year 5. Well done!
