Science in Year 6A

We kicked off a new science topic ‘Light and How We See’ with a science carousel around the theme of light. There were quite a few ‘WOW’ moments and lots of questions. Maybe at home you could discuss some questions relating to what we saw and even try to repeat some of them?


How can white light make a rainbow?

How is it that a spinning colour wheel can turn white?

How does light travel?

Why can I still see at night when all the lights are out?

How do we actually see?

Why do shadows change shape?

Why does light appear to reflect off some surfaces but not others?
