The short video below will help you understand the importance of sight, how light travels, how shadows are formed and the importance of our other senses in the absence of the sense of sight.
After you have watched this it would be great if you could make your own shadow puppets, considering carefully the material that you use and also experimenting with distance from the light and what effect this has on your puppet.
We would love to see your completed puppets and even puppet shows posted on our Year 3 Purple Mash blog!!! Have fun.

There might not be a lot of space on the International Space Station, but that didn't stop astronaut Steve Swanson and his crew finding lots of ways to have fun!
Steve’s space experience includes carrying out two Space Shuttle missions and being Commander of the International Space Station. In total he has spent 195 days and travelled over 83 million miles (134 million km) in space and carried out four space walks.
Tune in for FREE Tuesday 7th April at 2pm (BST) for Space to Learn, an inspirational hour with an astronaut, suitable for all ages from 6+ years. Hear Steve's best space stories with a LIVE 45 minute Q&A.
Follow @ISSET_STEM and @pintofscience on Twitter and get your questions in using the hashtag #spacetolearn and astronaut Steve will be answering the best ones LIVE.
Join Tony live as he narrates movies of his missions into space and talk us through from how the crew made the most of quarantine, to blast-off and completing the mission in space. He will then hold a question and answer session with the audience.
This session is for adults and families. It is for a limited size audience and carries a small charge of £5 which will help them support more webinars.
