Science - How the eye works

posted 6 Oct 2017, 08:05 by Oliver Mills
In science this week, we have begun learning about how the eye works. The children have demonstrated their knowledge by making physical models. These models show the process by which light entering the eye is turned into images that we can see. The children successfully modeled light entering the eye through the pupil and you can even see that when the light hits the retina in the back of the eye, the object actually appears upside down- we don't ever notice this because brains naturally correct the orientation of the object. 
These girls extended their model by showing both the iris and the pupil.
The boys pictured below extended their model by having the optic nerve extending from the back of the retina (Only just visible due to some below-par camera work by Mr Mills).
