From Teachers TV Lesson Planning Pack series, this video shows an example of how a lesson can introduce children to the idea of light travelling in a straight line. Rachel Dixon, a Year Six teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, presents her lesson on light. She aims to get her children to understand that light travels in a straight line from a light source, reflects off an object, a mirror and then into the eye. Rachel models what is happening with a torch, teddy, mirror and ribbon to represent the light. Working in small groups in the school hall, she then encourages her children to build their own model and draw what is happening on a large sheet of paper.
