Super scientists

We are looking at the work of the inventor, Sir Humphrey Davey. He invented the miners safety lamp so we thought we could investigate what light is and how it works.

There were some find blowing facts:

light only travels in straight lines!

light can be reflected or refracted

light is actually made up of all the colours of the rainbow

our jumpers are not actually blue; they are just good at reflecting blue light and absorbing all the other colours!!!


Mr Swalliw showed us practical experiments that we could do in class to prove all of these points…time to get the (metaphorical) lab coats on…
