5.. Light and Dark

Our lead subject is Science for this half term, where we studying light and dark and asking the question Do we really need to be grateful for light?.  


Having already explored Rocks and Stones, flowering plants, engineering and forces, we will continue our journey as scientist into this fascinating subject.  Our lessons will cover:

* how we need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light,

* notice how light is reflected from surfaces,

* learn that light from the sun can be dangerous and understand ways to protect our eyes from these dangers,

* explore how shadows are formed when light from a light source is blocked by an opaque,

* find patterns in the way that size of these shadows can change.


We will be studying and listening to the following books throughout our learning. You may like to buy them to have a copy of your own but please don't read them until we have looked at them in school first... we don't want you to ruin any surprises!
