Happy New Year and welcome back! Year 6 have jumped straight back into their learning: in RE, we have learnt about the three epiphanies; in maths, we were building our understanding on number magnitude with fractions; in English, the children have been practising their reading comprehension skills; and in science, the children carried out investigations about light.
Here are some of the questions the children answered on the topic of light:
- How do we see things?
- How do mirrors help us see objects?
- Why do shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them?
- Do darker objects make darker shadows?
- Does distance from a light source affect the size of the shadow?
