Year 5 have had a fabulous science week, investigating how light behaves. We started the week by looking at a large scale puppet show (from Britains Got Talent) and considered how they achieved the remarkable effect – we tried to replicate and manipulate the ideas on a smaller scale.
Next we narrowed our investigation by considering light and shadow and investigated how light travels – Mr Watson suggested that we could compare how light and water travel – see the photos!
After that we tried to make some sense out of what happens to an image when you look at it through a glass of water. We were all quite surprised! We thought of questions that, even though may not explain the effect, made us think about what we could change to see if a different result is produced.
All of our thoughts/questions/observations were recorded in our new science journals.
So, year 5, what did you think of Science Week? What did you enjoy the most? Could you carry on experimenting at home?
