Spring 1

 

This term we will be learning about Light.  

We will be learning 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

 

Autumn 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

This term we will be learning about Forces. This is consolidation of our learning from Year 5. 

 

We will be learning: 

Sc5/4.2a    explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object

Sc5/4.2b    identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces

Sc5/4.2c    recognise that some mechanisms including levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect
