Adventures with light

Form 7 have been exploring the refraction of light.

The children carried out a practical investigation to learn how, and why, light bends or refracts as it passes from one medium, such as air, to a denser medium such as glass. They traced the path of the ray and then completed their diagrams using a ruler. 

In other news this week, one member of the class was pleased to receive a surprise prize in the form of a Matryoshka doll. It had been awarded to the Modern Languages Department on his behalf following our Languages assembly, where he asked a very thoughtful question about Russia to one of our visiting parent speakers.
