Y3 Different Sources of Light

Pupils learn that a light source is something that produces light and that light sources enter our eyes and allow us to see them. They also learn that light also reflects (bounces) off objects that do not produce their own light. This reflected light helps us to see these objects. Pupils sort a number of items and objects in two groups, 'Light sources' and Light reflectors'.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - notice that light is reflected from surfaces; recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light
  • WS - use straightforward scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings; making systematic and careful observations
