Our new KS1 topic will look at all aspects of toys. We have started reading books about toys so it seemed a good idea to design and make our own toys.
Some of our older technologists were looking at light. Technology Tom introduced us to the idea of developing our own light show. To start with we looked at some very strange oprical illusions.
Tom showed us how light travels and about refectors and shadows.
We looked at how light can be useful in different ways. We then began to develop our own ideas.
Tom showed us all sorts of materials that would help during the light show.
The group are close to putting together a show for for parents that will incorporate light and sound.
They have looked closely at different aspects of how light travels.
They have constructed their own circuits and are utilising them to create a shadow puppet theatre.
Watch this space as the project progresses.
