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
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
