Our Writing this term will be based on the book The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde. We will be writing a narrative from different points of view.
In Science we will be covering the following objectives as part of our Light topic this term.
Sc6/4.1a recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines
Sc6/4.1b use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye
Sc6/4.1c explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes
Sc6/4.1d use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them
