We will start our topic to the Xplore museum in Wrexham, where, as well as touring the museum,  we will be taking part in a light workshop. 

During this topic we will learn the following National Curriculum objectives:

Recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines.

To represent and report on findings.

To take accurate measurements.

To identify and manage variables in an investigation.

Explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes.

Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye.

 Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.

There is also our band performances, a production and a leavers assembly and transition activities from the high school. 

We will be completing our class read
