Light and Shadows

As part of our Science topic this half term, we are investigating how light affects different surfaces. One group made a ‘Whizzer wheel’ by threading a loop of string through a coloured disc and spinning it fast to see the effect of different colours merging to make white light. Another group of children were given a plastic bowl of water and washing up liquid with a drinking straw.  They explored the way light can sometimes be split into the colours of the visible light spectrum. Another group were given compact discs, magnifying lenses and torches in order to investigate how light reacts to that material surface.
