How does Light Travel 6B?

Our Children in Year 6 were discovering how light travels and were given various materials in order to make a periscope,

The focus for today’s learning was to –

  • recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines
  •  use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen
    because they give out or reflect light into the eye
  • explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or
    from light sources to objects and then to our eyes
  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same
    shape as the objects that cast them.

The children really enjoyed exploring today and were really thinking carefully about their prior knowledge,
