Light and Dark
Through our science activities this term will be developing our awareness of Light and Dark. You can support this at home in lots of different ways, here are some suggestions!
- Explore a range of different light toys – look at different coloured lights, exploring the difference in the brightness of the lights when in a dark room and when in a light room
- Reinforce the terms ‘light’ and ‘dark’ to your child when in a ‘light’ or ‘dark’ room
- Use a torch and help your child to make lots of patterns with their torch
- Make a light and dark themed sensory bin. To do this you could fill a tray with either black material or with black rice (mix rice with black paint and then allow to dry). On top of your black material / rice, place a selection of different sensory lights, torches, glow sticks and encourage your child to explore the light.
