Seeing Light Example

Encourage your class to see the light with these KS2 Science 'Seeing Light' lessons for Year 6. Looking at how light travels, how shadows are formed and how they behave, as well as taking a closer look at the eye and how it works, these KS2 Science lessons will give your class a complete view of how we see things.

With lesson plans, slides, activity ideas, differentiated worksheets and much more, these resources provide everything you need to enlighten your class as to how they see light and how light behaves. It's a real eye-opener!

Seeing Light: The Eyes

Seeing Light: The Eyes

Lesson #2
Price: £2.99

This lesson teaches children about how we need light to see things and how the eyes work. They will discover some of the different parts of the eye, including the lens, retina, iris and optic nerve, and how each part works to enable us to see. This lesson contains a lesson plan, slides, activity ideas, differentiated worksheets and Challenge Cards.

Seeing Light: Reflection

Seeing Light: Reflection

Lesson #3
Price: £2.99

Light can only travel in a straight line so how can we see around corners? This lesson uses mirrors to teach children about reflection and how reflecting light off mirrors at different angles can help us to see things we wouldn't normally be able to see if we were looking straight ahead. This lesson contains a lesson plan, slides, activity ideas and differentiated worksheets.

Seeing Light: Reflecting Surfaces

Seeing Light: Reflecting Surfaces

Lesson #4
Price: £2.99

We have found out so far that mirrors reflect a lot of light but are there any other surfaces that do the same? This lesson explores how surfaces reflect and absorb light before giving your class the chance to explore which surfaces reflect more light than others. This lesson contains a lesson plan, slides, activity ideas, differentiated worksheets and Surface Cards.

Seeing Light: Changing Shadows

Seeing Light: Changing Shadows

Lesson #5
Price: £2.99

By now, your class should know how shadows are formed but how do they behave? This lesson gives your class the chance to plan and carry out an investigation into the behaviour of shadows, looking at questions such as how the distance of an opaque object from a light source will affect the size of a shadow. This lesson contains a lesson plan, slides, activity ideas and differentiated worksheets.

Seeing Light: An Evaluation

Seeing Light: An Evaluation

Lesson #6
Price: £2.99

After recapping the difference between shadows and reflections, this lesson gives your class the opportunity to consolidate their knowledge of how we see things, drawing on all the information they have found out over the course of the module. This lesson contains a lesson plan, slides, activity ideas, a worksheet, an Information Book Template and an End of Unit Quiz.

Curriculum Objectives (6)


Science Objectives

  • planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary
  • reporting and presenting findings from enquiries, including conclusions, causal relationships and explanations of and degree of trust in results, in oral and written forms such as displays and other presentations
  • recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines
  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye
  • explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes
  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them
