How does light travel?

In Y56 we created 'human models' to demonstrate how light travels from a light source onto an object and then how it is reflected into our eyes, which enables us to see things. We worked brilliantly in our groups to create mini-videos to explain this. Here are a few pictures of us at…

Town and Country Atlas work

To begin our topic ‘Town and Country’, we were given a map quiz and had to use our atlas skills to find the answers. Some of the mountain ranges and towns were tricky to find, however we used what we knew about atlases to search through the index.
