Science 27.4.20 Week 6

Science 27.4.20  Week


Our block of science lessons this term is all about light. Light is a truly amazing thing, but what is it? In this unit we will be gathering ideas, thinking about how we can provide reasons for our understanding.


Look at the short video of The 3 Little Piggies. This is a puppet play with a difference. How have the characters been made? At the end of this unit, I would like you to be able to perform your own shadow puppet play (but this is not for a few weeks yet).


Starter: Today we will be thinking about what light is and how it behaves. To do this we are going to investigate light using a cardboard box.  Look at the Investigation Powerpoint.


Main: Prepare the cardboard box using the notes attached. You will need a torch (this could be on your phone), a sharp pencil, and an investigation sheet. Complete the activity and complete the investigation sheet (you can type into this). 


Plenary: Together share the explanation powerpoint. Think about your observations. Make comparisons. Make notes about the new information you have learnt about light.
