Autumn 1 - Light and Darkness

This half term in science, we have been thinking about light and darkness and the difference between the two. We've conducted lots of experiments and learnt lots of new words. Ask your child what these words mean and they should be able to tell you!


- reflection

- shadow

- transparent

- opaque

- translucent

- prism

- spectrum

- white light

- light source

- luminous

- non-luminous


We've also taken part in lots of fun and exciting investigations. We've tried to make light bend around objects, played reflection games and in writing, we wrote fabulous explanations of how mirrors work.
