Class: Year 3/4: Ruby Year: 2023 - 2024

In today's science learning we have been finding out about reflection. We found out that light travels in straight lines and bounces off flat, reflective surfaces such as a mirror. During our investigations today, we used a mirror to write secret messages for a friend that had the letters reversed – they needed a mirror to read them! Then we used a mirror help us travel along different chalk lines drawn on the hall floor. We used the mirror held above our heads to track the reflection and move along the lines. It was tricky not to have a “sneaky peak” at the ground to help us!
