During our unit of work, the children will:
- recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light;
- notice that light is reflected from surfaces;
- recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes;
- recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object;
- find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.
