Year 6 Science - Light


By Logan

Our Science topic this half term is LIGHT. We learnt that light travels in straight lines. We then learnt about refraction and we performed many experiments to see refaction for ourselves. We discovered that, as the light entered a glass of water, the light changed direction making the image appear different. This makes the object change size depending on the angle. If you put an object outside a glass and look through the glass, the object appears bigger.

In our last lesson, we made spinners so that we could merge the 7 colours of the rainbow back into white light. When we spun the spinners the different colours all merged into white.
