Summer Term 1
Summer 1 objective overview - What makes a Grand Design?
In this ‘Light’ unit, year 6 will learn about light, how we see, shadows, reflection and refraction. The children will learn how light travels and how this enables us to see objects. They will demonstrate their knowledge by designing and conducting their own investigations. They will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate refraction, carrying out some fascinating experiments into the effects of bending light. Furthermore, they will have chance to predict what will happen in an exciting investigation into the visible spectrum. They will work in a hands-on way to explore how light creates the colours we see. They will also learn about the anatomy of the human eye and how it allows us to see.
