In Science, we are learning about light. Today we learned all about refraction and how light behaves depending on the type of matter it travels through. We found out that particles in liquids and solids can cause the light to bend and therefore distort the image that we see.
We looked through water to observe how it changed what we see and we compared it to the image that we saw through a gas (air).
We then observed what happened to an object when submerged in a liquid and how the image of it changed because of refraction.v
We saw the real power of refraction when we saw how it could completely change an image. The image of the arrow was flipped by refraction caused by the particles in the liquid changing the direction of the light.
This afternoon, Year 6 went to Ladywell Fields for our PE lesson.
We learned how to control the ball while dribbling and even had a go at defending attacks from other players.
Can you remember the tips we came up with to effectively dribble and defend?
Today, we planned an investigation about what happens when light hits different surfaces.
We planned the investigation then made predictions about what we would see.
We carefully recorded our findings and then wrote down our conclusions
Can you remember what we discovered?
Materials that are ____ and ____ reflect light.
Materials that are ____ and _____ absorb light.
Last week, we had lots of fun when learning our spellings.
We loved playing this game and it meant that we were able to do really well in the quiz.
What helps you to learn your spellings at home?
Hello Year 6!
Here is this week’s home learning:
Don’t forget to practise the spellings ready for the quiz in class next week!
