Investigating Shadows

Lime class made shadow puppets from black paper and lolly-pop sticks.  Then they pretended their torches were the sun to try and make their puppet's shadows longer and shorter. We also explored shadows and how they change during the day.

Martial Arts Day!

On Wednesday, Master Wayne visited the school to teach the children martial arts. Elm Class learnt a karate routine and some basic self-defence.
