Y6 Light Travels in Straight Lines

Pupils learn that light travelling from a light source will always travel in a straight line and that light reflecting off an object, reflects off it at the same angle it shines onto it.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - understand that light appears to travel in straight lines; use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye; explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes
  • NaG - pupils should explore the way that light behaves
  • WS - pupils should identify scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments
