Yr.6 started their science topic on light today.  They created shadows and looked at how these were formed.  They then looked at how they could change the size of the shadow and the darkness of the shadow.  They used transparent, translucent and opaque objects and created shadows in various places in the room.

Following this we looked at how we see objects, everyone went into a cupboard with no lights and found that they couldn’t see at all.  We looked at how light enters our eyes through the pupil and how this changes size depending on the amount of light in the room.  we also looked at how we see objects with he light reflecting from the object into our eyes.
