Autumn 1 - Light


This half term in Year 6, we will be working as scientists to study the topic of Light!


We will begin by learning about how light travels, how it reflects off objects, and how this enables us to see the world around us. We will continue to study how light reflects off objects by building periscopes to see above and around objects that block our view, before investigating the size and shape of shadows and how to change these. Once we have an understanding of how we see, we'll then spend time studying the scientific phenomena of refraction, and why this happens, before discovering how light is made up of a spectrum. 


To see what we are learning about in more detail, take a look at our Pledge Sheet and Knowledge Organiser below!
