Modelling Light

mediumblue

Summary

A great primary lesson idea for Key Stage 2 science pupils, using modelling to demonstrate how light travels.

Rachel Dixon, Year 6 teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, presents her lesson on light. She aims to get her pupils to understand that light travels in a straight line from a light source, reflects off an object, then mirror and then into the eye.

Rachel models what is happening with a torch, teddy, mirror and ribbon to represent the light.

Working in small groups in the school hall, she then gets her pupils to build their own model and draw what is happening on a large sheet of A3 paper.

This video is part of the Lesson Planning Pack - Light for KS2 science, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
