"I love the resources, they're nicely linked to curriculum objectives and easy to pick up. Especially good for the
science-phobic amongst us as the ideas are all there."
Kay Wilkie, Year 6 teacher
In this lesson pack for year 6 and P7, linking to the topic light and vibrations and waves, pupils will discover how light travels in straight lines and is reflected off of objects so we can see them. Pupils will learn about the different parts of the eye, including the cornea, lens, pupil, retina and iris. Using mirrors and a kitchen roll, pupils will investigate light by building a simple periscope.
This downloadable pack includes:
A lesson plan, complete with top tips for setting up the activity.
Printable instructions for the activity.
A PowerPoint presentation that explains how we see.
A writing frame for an explanation text with a diagram of the eye, to be used in English lessons.
Three speedy science activities.
Simple to resource! The items you will need:
Kitchen roll tubes
Mirrors (the rectangular mirrors you use in maths will be perfect)
"My 10 year old son and his friend spent 30 minutes reading this together, and forgot - actually forgot! - that I had permitted some gaming time for them this afternoon! Literally the first time that has ever happened. Thank you! "Flora
"The subscription was a Christmas pressie for my 9 year old - we both love the magazine and doing the experiments together. Great bonding and great opportunity to do practical science experiments! Amazing!!"Cesca Voo
"My daughter received her first issue yesterday, and she loves it! I was impressed with the quality of the content, and the paper it's printed on. I took out the year subscription and folder on a whim and so glad I did! The extra touch was her name on the envelope."Ruth Louise
"It's full of interesting ideas and activities - and jokes! My grandson (now 7) has been reading it for a couple of years now: he loves it and keeps going back to each issue."Lesley Burt
"A brilliant magazine which fills a real gap in the market. It’s fun, intelligent and very “do-able” for a wide range of ages and abilities."Carolyn Stroud
