The Explorer Dome - All about Light


Once again the Explorer Dome and its team proved a popular visitor . Class 6R and 6W had the world of light brought to life inside the Tardis like dome.


Reflection, Refraction, Light Spectrums, how rainbows are made and the journey time of light from the Sun (a mere 8 minutes from source!!), the Dome's team cover it all in a fun and interactive way. 


Reflecting lasers off mirrors proved popular amongst the children, as did the blending of red, blue and green light to create white light. A vast proportion of the Year 6 topic of light was covered with everyone learning something new. 


The children will be writing a recount of the event and samples of their writing will be published here shortly.


Below is a picture of the Dome
