On Friday we had a challenge to design and make sunglasses. They had to be able to stay on our heads and they had to let light through the lenses. The children came up with lots of wonderful and unique design ideas, and they had a lot of fun making them.

On Thursday we recorded how the movement of the sun throughout the day changes the length and positions of our shadows. We went out three times during the day and traced our shadows and measured how long they were each time. We discovered that the length of our shadows decreased by about 2 metres between 9 am and 1 pm!
