Exploring Shadows

Last week... We read a new Gruffalo Story... “The Gruffalo’s child’. In the book, the mouse again scares the Gruffalo’s child with his clever tricks, this time using his shadow. This led to lots of interest in shadows so we set up our lamp on a small table to see if we could recreate the trick of making the mouse bigger. We will explore this further next week!

While we were outside in the sun today, I drew the children’s attention to their shadows on the ground. We experimented with making our shadows larger and smaller and tried to make scary shadows to scare away the ‘Gruffalo’. Can you guess whose shadows these are?
