Autumn 2 2020
In autumn term 2, they learnt about light. They explored how light travels, how mirrors reflect light and how they can help us see objects. They were able to create and use periscopes and measure the angles of incidence and reflection. We experimented with refraction at home while isolating, and studied Isaac Newton and his discovery of colours using a prism.
