Investigating Light

Class 4 know that light can only travel in a straight line. It cannot bend or turn around corners. This week, the children were challenged to find out how they would be able to get a light beam to turn a corner! Thinking as scientists, the children soon came up with the idea that mirrors reflect light, therefore they could be used to change the direction of a light beam.

They set about investigating how they could use mirrors to change the direction of light.
