SCIENCE - LIGHT

Class 2's science topic this term is light. This week's objective is to explore reflective surfaces. If you can't print out the worksheets, just record your work on a blank piece of paper.

1. Use the PowerPoint and pause to use the activities when prompted. At the start there is a link to watch a short film about the importance of reflective materials in safety at night.

2. Choose some materials to test: CD or DVD, foil, bubble wrap, any type of fabric, paper, cardboard or plastic. Use your reflection tester: a torch pushed through a hole in a piece of white card. Does your material reflect the light from the torch onto the white card? Record your results on the Testing reflective materials sheet or a piece of paper and put the materials in order from the one that reflects light the most to the least.

3. Using your results, choose a reflective material to use on a school book bag. Which material would work best and what shape should it be and which position would you place it on the book bag? Either draw on a piece of paper or record on the Choosing material sheet.

4.  Extra activity: Design a poster to tell people how to dress to be seen in the dark. Explain how to choose clothes that reflect light well.

 You will also find a light 'knowledge organiser' in the files below. This will give you and your parents a good idea of the knowledge we will be covering in science this term.
