Our light box

Blog Entry: 10th September 2020

Children are fascinated by shadows yet are often unaware of why they appear and change. The light box is used as an aid to explore shadows and the light that shines through objects.

We have a large collection of solid and flat shapes of different sizes to be explored by our children. These serve as interesting learning tools in their own right, helping our children to understand the relationship of size and sequence.
