How do we see?

Year 6 have been investigating how we can see objects using a mirror, torch and black paper.

Have a look at the photos to see us in action.

Here are our thoughts:

"When you turn on a light, it reflects off the object so you can see it. That's impressive, before this experiment I thought the light just went into your eyes."

"I just thought that the light meant you could see and now I know how we actually see."

"Since our lesson, I've seen light reflecting off some objects on to the wall."

"When the lights are off, things aren't invisible. You can't see them clearly as there isn't enough light to reflect off the objects."
