Studying Light in Year 6

September 15, 2016

In Year 6, we’ve been looking at light-related phenomena such as light refraction and light reflection during our Cross- Curricular lessons. Since it’s such a fascinating topic, we decided to carry out an experiment in order to better understand how light changes from medium to medium.

For the experiment we needed a glass recipient, filled with water, pencils and paper. We put the pencils inside the glass recipient and noticed how refracting light changed the way we saw the pencil under water. It looked larger and the contour was blurry!

We can’t wait for our next experiment!
