Sunshine and shadows

It has been so nice to have some sunshine and to be able to get out and play with shadows. On Wednesday Mrs Graham had to stand really still as the children drew around her shadow.  We looked at how her shadow changed at different times of the day. In the morning it was long and stretched out towards the classroom. Later in the day her shadow was shorter, and stretched in a different direction. When we looked in the sky it appeared as if the sun had moved. Could this be is what made the shadow change place? We need to do some more investigation. Let's hope we have lots more sunny days!
