A creative KS2 science lesson idea on how light travels Rachel Dixon, year 6 teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, presents her lesson on light. The objective of this lesson is to get her pupils to understand that light travels in a straight line from a light source, reflects off an object, then mirror and then into the eye.
Working in small groups in the school hall, Rachel models what is happening with a torch, teddy, mirror and ribbon to represent the light. She then gets her pupils to build their own model then draw what is happening on a large sheet of A3.
This programme is part of the KS2 Science Lesson Planning Pack on Light, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
