What makes light?

What makes light?  This is the big science question we are wondering about in Sanderson Whanau. We have started exploring LIGHT, DARK and COLOUR.  We are sharing what we already know about light and colour. We are undertaking simple experiments which help us explore, communicate and extend our ideas.  We work in groups sharing and taking turns. We listen to each others ideas and add our own. Mrs Morris reads ideas from books and asks questions.

Click this link for the BBC science clip about light and dark.

Gus and Dylan create a scene inside a shoebox.

Holly looks in the shoe box. She can't see anything. There is NO light.

We add a flap for light to get in. Now Abby can see what is in the box.
Next we shine a torch to add more light.
