Y6 Seeing Things

Pupils learn that we can see things because light rays from a light source reflect of objects and then enter our eyes. They learn about the basic structure of the eye and how it allows light rays to enter it and form an image on the retina.

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
