Comparative and fair testing

In Year 5 & 6 the children were asked to carry out a test comparing the rate at which colours spread and which colours are present within other colours.

The children thought about the best way to present this to show their findings.

Investigating Shadows

The Year 6 children we learning that shadows are formed when light is blocked by an opaque object, creating a pattern of light on a surface. Children investigate what happens to its shadow when an object is moved towards a light source. They predicted and then measure the width of an objects shadow at different distances from the light source. Children recorded their information in a table and use it to create a line graph. They attempt to explain the relationship between distance and shadow width.
