Transparent and opaque
This week in our Topic lessons we were learning about transparent and opaque materials. We discussed the importance of having both materials in our everyday lives and how they have different purposes. Using torches we explored different materials to see how transparent or opaque they were. We then used this new knowledge to design a lampshade/lantern, we had to think carefully about the materials we would need to use. We didn't want to let too much light through but we wanted to be able to see some light coming through. This was a great opportunity for us to practice the skills of working with others and problem solving.
