Light and Mirrors


Aimed at Key Stage 2 children, this is a series of science/literacy lessons aiming to teach technical report writing in a fun and interesting way, by using an scientific exploration of light and reflection as the subject matter!

The pupils are first given a mystery to solve (reason for writing) and then set out to solve the mystery by learning about how we see objects, how light reflects and how periscopes work.

5 x 60 minute lesson plans, together with PowerPoint slides and associated worksheets are available below.
