It has been a busy scientific term in P4/5/6!  Over the past few weeks we have explored all aspects of Light.  We learned about shadows, reflections and how light can bend when it travels through a different medium.

We had fun with a periscope, looking around the room for a secret message being held up on a whiteboard.  This was made possible with the mirrors reflecting the light.

Our camera obscuras showed us how light is reflected into our eyes.  This appears as an upside down image.  Our brain flips this around so that it makes sense to us.  But in this camera, it is projected upside down on to the tracing paper screen.  One pupil decided to do some handstands so that she would be seen the “right way up” in her friend’s camera obscura!  It was lots of fun to experiment with.
