Light and Dark


Identify and name some different sources of light

Know that some sources of light are natural and some are man-made

Understand that light sources vary in brightness

Today Room 3 learnt that light comes from a variety of sources. We also used words such as brighter/dimmer, lighter/darker, and lightest/darkest. We used the interactive activity to help us understand the objectives.

Constable Mike's Safety Seat Message

It is generally accepted that children under the height of 148cm should be seated in an appropriate child restraint. The type of car restraint you should use depends on the age and size of your child.

Land Transport NZ, Factsheet 7, Child Restraints, February 2009.
If you answer 'no' to any of these questions, your child needs to be in a booster (safety) seat.

1.    Does your child sit all the way back against the car seat?
2.    Do your child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the car seat?
3.    Does the belt cross the shoulder between the neck and the arm?
4.    Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?

Today we were learning to find out why shadows change size throughout the day.
First we made predictions about where we thought the shadow of an object would be with the sun shining at 9.00am in the morning, at 12.00 midday and at 3.00pm in the afternoon. 
Then we used the following interactive activity to help us understand more 
about shadows and the position of the sun.



We learnt that in the morning and in the afternoon an objects shadow is longer that it would be at midday when a shadow is shorter. In the afternoon and morning the sun is lower in the sky.
A shadow is made when an object blocks light.
