Science - Light


This afternoon we would like you to complete a lesson on the Oak National Academy website. This will continue the work we have begun on light - we will be focusing on reflection in particular. 


The link to the lesson is as follows (I will pop this as a separate link at the bottom of the page):


By the end of the lesson video (which is about thirty minutes) we would like to produce two pieces of work:


1) A glossary of terms for the 'star words' mentioned in the video.

2) A poster all about reflection. You may want to make notes as you watch the video so you have all of the information you need. Please include images and diagrams if you can and ensure you've explained the process.



Complete the quiz at the end of the lesson.
