Time for reflection!
Last ween Year 6 were applying their understanding of Light and it's properties to solve a criminal investigation!
When we were investigating reflection, we revisited some simple activities which helped to remind us about the way in which mirrors work and why they are so useful. We discovered that Mirror mazes (where you navigate by looking at a reflection) were hard to finish, because the reflection is backwards and upside down; mirror hinges allowed us to see lots of reflected reflections (making some lovely patterns) and mirror writing allowed us to write in secret code, just like the great inventor and artist, Leonardo Da Vinci!
And then we used our understanding to solve a mystery involving a periscope, or at least to eliminate a suspect from our ongoing enquiries!
