Year 6 Light Knowledge Organiser!

This clear, detailed and visually-appealing resource offers a complete reference point for Year 6 children, teachers and parents covering knowledge relating to ‘Light’, as a part of their science learning. It contains comprehensive sections on:

How We See Things;
How Light Travels;
Our Eyes;
Light Spectrum;
Key Vocabulary (underlined).

The content is fully aligned with the NC expectations for Year 6 children relating to ‘Light:’
-Recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines;
-Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen
because they give out or reflect light into the eye;
-Explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or
from light sources to objects and then to our eyes;
-Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.

The resource is designed to be printed onto A3, and is provided as both a PDF and a Word version (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
