Year 6 Investigate How We See

Year 6 are currently studying light as part of their science learning. They are looking at how light travels, sources of light and how we see. As part of this, we are investigating the different parts of the eye and how each function, when combined, enables us to interpret the world around us visually.

Last week, we were extremely lucky to have the opportunity to observe an eye dissection. Ms Smith came over from the secondary campus to dissect an eye and she explained the function of the different parts and how they worked together. By projecting the image on the large screen, everyone got the opportunity to see exactly what was happening. All the children were then very brave and donned gloves in order to get a hands on experience. They were able to pick up an eye and feel it – many children commented that it did not feel like they were expecting it to, they were also able to see how the lens magnifies and look in more detail at the inside of the eye. Opportunities to ask questions enabled children to clarify and further their own understanding.

This week, the children will be reflecting on the experience in the classroom, where they will record their recollections and use what they have learnt in their own work. We would like to say a huge thank you to the Secondary campus science department for their support.
