The Science of Light!

Today year 3 had a special visitor from Sheffield University who came to do a science workshop about light. First, we looked at different sources of light and learnt that while the sun is a source of light the moon only reflects light from the sun. We used a fibre optic cable to send light across the classroom. Year three also learnt that white light is actually made up of the seven colours of the rainbow and used special refraction glasses to see the colours. Year three then used a red and blue filter to experiment with colour and found that when they held the red filter the blue block on the board disappeared.
