I made this to teach KS1 children about shadows. The Peter Pan picture is a good discussion point (can your shadow move on its own? Can you touch your shadow etc.). The shared read also explores these ideas of a shadow, helping to draw out and challenge misconceptions. There is then a hyperlink to a More… fantastic Interactive resource which the children can use to explore shadows in terms of length and direction in the day and night, indoors and outdoors. The end of the PowerPoint features a Weakest Link style quiz which I usually use as a plenary.

Great idea to link to Peter Pan and helps with discussion. Couldn't find the hyperlink though?
