Our last lesson on light! Well done Y6.
We would like you to build something to help you see objects that aren't directly in front of you. Please record in a diagram how this works. We would love to see your work you have completed, any diagrams, plans or notes would be lovely!
You are expected to watch a video and refer to some texts to find out how we see things.
You will then complete a diagram with a short paragraph underneath explaining how we see things.
As you carry out your research, you will find other facts out. You should record these too. There are sheets on the website to use, if you would like to print them off. Otherwise, please work on paper. Keep your work as you will need it next week.
This week you will carry out some investigations to help you decide how light travels. You will then watch a demonstration video that will help you make up your mind.
You will be asked to produce a labelled diagram that shows Tom how light travels. Keep the diagram for week 4 as we will look at a few examples and see if we can improve them.
For this activity you are expected to predict which character is correct: the neighbour, Tom's uncle or his grandma.
You will then plan an investigation to test which objects can be seen without light, carry out the investigation and record your results.
Finally, you need to report your findings and convince the other two characters that you are correct!
