In science this week, we looked at how light refracts when it passes through different mediums. As light passes through water it slows down  compared to when it travels through air. When you place a pencil ✏️ in a glass of water it looks like the pencil bends due to the rays of light changing direction.

We also looked at how an image of an arrow appears to point in the other  direction when placed behind a glass of water. When the light all comes together it is called the focal point, but beyond the focal point the image appears to reverse. Absolutely amazing!
