In Year 3 we have been learning about light. We first discovered that darkness is the absence of light and we completed an experiment to see how much light we need to be able to see different objects.
After this we discovered that light is reflected from smooth and shiny surfaces because the light bounces off, we also learnt that dull surfaces do not reflect the light. During our experiment we noticed that all of the shiny surfaces that reflected the light also had our reflection in them.
We looked closer at reflections and used a range of different mirrors and shiny objects to see if all reflections are the same. We noticed that some reflections make us look bigger, smaller, wider, taller or even upside down. We grouped the objects according to what reflection they gave. Now we are going to learn about the effects of sunlight and how this can be dangerous to our skin and eyes.
