Sapphire have been looking at how light travels.

This week, we have been learning how we see different colours and how light travels. We know that light comes from a light source and travels in straight lines to an object. The light then travels into our eyes. We used arrows to show the direction of the light with different objects.

We also discussed how objects absorb (take in) light and that when we see colours, every colour of light is absorbed into that object except for that colour. For example: if we see a red ball, the ball has absorbed every colour of light except red.
