Light Experiment Day

Year Six are having a fantastic day taking part in lots of science experiments all about… light!

“I loved this lesson. Science is one of my favourite subjects. I learnt that a transparent coloured object (a blue bottle) will make a blue shadow!” Blake – Y6 Quartz.

“We had to do an experiment about light today and I worked with Louie. We had to predict whether the distance between the light and the object had an impact on the size of the shadow created. We predicted that the shadow would become larger, the closer to the object the light source became… And we were right!” – Red, Year Six Opal.

It’s Time for Science!

Light, light, light! Did you know that the Sun, fires and lamps are all sources of light? Mirrors and other objects reflect light. They do not make their own light.

Year Six have started a new topic today – Light!

Over the next two days, we’re going to learn all about: sources of light; how we see; how light travels and complete a series of ‘light’ experiments.

First, we discussed what we already know about light and what we’d like to learn. Here we are filling in our tables:

Then, we walked around the classroom and corridor, reading all the light facts that we could see. Afterwards, we had a go at ‘Sticky Fingers’ and shared all the facts we’d learned.

Once we’d shared our facts, we took part in a quick quiz all about light. We’ll have another go at the end of this topic, to see how much we’ve learned.

Now it was time to complete some experiments. Some people were researching light in text books from the library; others were experimenting with light, mirrors, torches and shadows.

Later on, we came back together to watch a quick video about how light travels in a straight line and completed some diagrams which showed how we see light. The light travels from the source, then reflects off the object and into the person’s eyes so they can see the object.

Once we’d completed that task, we started to learn about the human eye and how the eye functions. We learned all about the different parts of the eye and Mr Sieczkarek came in and taught us how the eye allows us to see!

Electricity Investigations

Currently, our science topic is electricity. We’ve learned lots of facts about electricity today such as who invented the lightbulb and how electricity can be made.

Interesting, fun, technical – we’ve been creating our own series and parallel circuits using some of the school’s science equipment. Some of us completed out challenge really quickly; others found creating a successful circuit more difficult – perhaps our batteries were dead or our bulbs blown?
