Science in Year 6

In Year 6, we have been learning all about light! We have learnt which materials reflect light the best and how light travels. We have been applying this knowledge to an investigation where we made periscopes! Following this we have written our own detailed set of instructions on how to make a periscope!

What can you remember from our topic?

Can you tell me what the key words: opaque, translucent and transparent mean?

    Transparent objects are the objects that light can pass through easily. Translucent objects are the objects that light can pass through partially. Opaque objects are the objects that light can’t pass through.
