Transparent, translucent or opaque?

Y3 have been classifying objects into transparent, translucent and opaque by shining a torch at them and looking at the shadow.  Transparent objects cast no shadow, translucent cast a light shadow and opaque cast a dark shadow.  We can neither confirm or deny that we may have had fun making shadows with the torches too, it was far too dark to tell!
