Our Enquiry is:
Where does the darkness come from?

Enquiry – CuriousCity States of Being

We are Scientists:

- recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light;

- notice that light is reflected from surfaces;

- recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and the ways to protect their eyes;

- recognise that shadows are formed when the light is blocked by an opaque object;

- find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.

We are Geographers:

We are Artists:

- improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay] - stencils and cut-outs.

We are Engineers:

- select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to accurately perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing].
