Year 6 have seen the light!

Year 6 demonstrated their fantastic problem solving skills yesterday as they were challenged to find a way to win a game of laser tag without ever leaving cover. As you can see from the photographs, they used their knowledge of how light travels, along with reflection, to create a model that showed the solution. The only material that the children were given was a piece of paper and they had to ask for anything additional that they required, including Lego pieces to make barriers, a light box to act as the laser and a target to act as another player. The children asked some really interesting questions and investigated different ways to improve their model, such as by closing the blinds, switching off the lights and moving away from any natural light sources. Super science, Year 6!
