A montage of images showing everyday examples of light and shadows. Scenes include light from a lamp, the Sun, a projector, and a lighthouse. Shadows are shown using palm trees, the Angel of the North, a hot air balloon, a sundial and puppets. This clip has no narration.

You could invite the pupils to choose a scene from the clip and use it as the starting point of a documentary about how light and shadows behave and work together. Some children might want to research how sundials work or how Stonehenge marks the midsummer sunrise. It could also be used to inspire creative writing or poetry linked to learning about light and darkness. Equally, it could be used to link learning across the curriculum by inspiring visually creative art work.
