Our topic for the after February half term is...
LET IT SHINE
We will begin our topic with a trip to the MOSI where we will take part in a workshop 'The Wonder of Light'. Whilst in Manchester, we will also be visiting the John Ryland's library.
We will achieve this knowledge by teaching the children the following 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.
Our class text will be Light Jar by Lisa Thompson
