English – Please edit your letter.


Science – This week we will be using our pinhole cameras. Hopefully you have made yours. When you look through it, you should see the image you are looking at in front of you is upside down on the greaseproof paper.

This is because:

Light bounces off the objects that we see and travels into our eyes so that we can see the objects. As the image passes through the lens, muscles in our eye adjust the lens so that it focuses just like a camera. The image is then projected onto the back wall (retina) of the inside of the eye. This then sends a message to our brain to tell us what it is we are looking at. As the image passes through the lens it gets turned upside down, it is our brain that turns it back up the right way so that we see things the right way up.

This is how your pin-hole camera works – the image we are seeing hasn’t been flipped back yet.

Please use the image attached to draw and explain this process.


PE – Please complete an online workout
