Investigating shadows

As part of our science topic about the changing seasons, we learned about how the earth rotates once a day to give us day and night, and how the earth revolves around the sun to give us 4 seasons in a year: autumn, winter, spring and summer. We went on to the yard and used our maths skills to measure the length of our shadows and investigate whether the length and direction of the shadows changed at different times of the day. Even though it looks like the sun is moving across the sky, we are the ones moving as the earth spins around! We love science and maths!
