Sharks have been reflecting in science

This week in science Sharks have been learning all about reflection. The children had to find different materials like, sequins, gold paper, a wooden block, felt and then they had to predict which of the material would reflect. They then shone a torch through a small hole in a piece of card to see if the material reflected back onto the card. The children were surprised by some of the items that they chose actually did reflect when they predicted it wouldn’t.

We also had a class discussion about why children’s coats and bags have reflective materials on them.
