Autumn 2

Bright Lights, Mad Sounds!

This half term, our topic will be "Bright Lights, Mad Sounds!" where we'll study light, sound and electricity. We'll be learning about how we need light in order to see things and how light is reflected from surfaces. Additionally, we will investigate how shadows are formed and carry out our own scientific investigation into how shadows change.

Furthermore, we'll be learning about how sounds are made and how they travel through the ear, presenting our findings in imaginative ways. We'll then investigate pitch and volume, explaining how to change the pitch of an instrument and how distances affect the volume of a sound. Finally, we'll learn how circuits are formed, and making and drawing our own circuit diagrams using scientific symbols. In DT sessions, we'll apply our learning to make a willow Christmas tree lantern with a light circuit.
