Autumn 1 Introduction


Our topic for the first part of this term was ‘Can Shadows Dance in the Night?’ This was inspired by the book ‘The Night Gardener' which we used in our English lessons.


In Science, we looked at what shadows were and how they were formed. We even went outside to witness how our shadows change during the course of the day.

As well as shadows, we investigated electricity – in particular circuits. This helped us develop the skills to make our Night Light.


In Design Technology, we were given the challenge of designing and creating a working Night Light for a toddler. We thoroughly enjoyed this project and came up with fantastic creations.
