In this Episode of Jojo Science show we do 10 easy, amazing and interesting experiments for kids based on light.

Hello Year 5 and 6 This half term's topic is still ---Light.

Light is all around us, but as we are not in schools, we can't experiment with prisms and light and measure light effects. Take a look at some of these experiments about light. . I will add some activities and experiments for you to try at home by downloading or printing experiments.So remember to check out the class pages for the science weekly downloads.
