Year 7 back in the Physics Labs

In Physics, Year 7 pupils conducted their own hands-on practical investigation into how light reflects and refracts.

In Physics, Year 7 pupils conducted their own hands-on practical investigation into how light reflects and refracts. One of their tasks included producing Newton’s “Rainbow” (or Spectrum of light) by shining white light through a prism and then recombining that spectrum back into a single ray of white light using a second prism. This required a bit of skill, as they had to carefully align both prisms at appropriate angles with their ray boxes to get the desired result.

It was absolutely fantastic to see these boys back in the lab, collaborating and researching in small groups. Many thanks to Mrs France and Year 7G for allowing us to view their work.
