mediumblue

Summary

Reinforce Year 6 science learners' understanding that light comes from a source, with this short Key Stage 2 lesson starter which includes a question to spark further debate.

In a warehouse, eight moving lights used in rock concerts and theatres have been set up in a row. They're sophisticated light sources, capable of generating a spectrum of colour as well as a complex range of moving shapes and patterns.

A look inside the lights reveals for primary pupils how small wheels and micro-motors within the lamps create the light show .
