Shadow investigation

Shadow investigation 3
Shadow investigation 4
Shadow investigation 5
In Year 5, we planned how we could investigate what happens to shadows throughout the day. We decided a good way was to measure the shadow of something big on the pitch every hour. We used a height measuring stick in the same position each hour and recorded the length of the shadow. We then discussed the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky and why this happens.
