LKS2 investigate shadows

Years 3 and 4 spent Thursday afternoon exploring the world of shadows and working on making scientific predictions. We learnt the words transparent, translucent and opaque to describe how much light different materials allow through. We established that shadows are when light is blocked by a solid object and chose different materials to put between […]

Using a thermometer, they carefully measured the temperature of the hot water in their beakers and recorded the temperature every minute in a table. After the experiment, children from different groups […]

Mirrors and reflection in LKS2

Years 3 and 4 have continued their learning about light with some further investigation into mirrors and reflection. We have investigated the fact that we need light to see and drawn simple conclusions on this subject. We then focused on the concept of reflection and used mirrors to generate and answer questions and to discuss […]
