Year 5 Science - Light

Year 5 have been focusing on light in their current science unit. This week, we learned all about how we are able to see different colours based on wavelengths and which colours are reflected and absorbed. The children were amazed that because bananas reflect the colour yellow, theoretically they are blue! 

We carried out a simple experiment which allows us to see how light refracts and displays different colours!
