Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

I can make a Rainbow!

Today, we have been very lucky as we have been conducting science experiments to learn the colours of the rainbow and how they are formed.

We discovered, that there are seven colours in the rainbow and we can recite them in order (sometimes we get confused with indigo and violet...we will crack it soon!!)

We learnt the colours of the rainbow in various different ways. This included singing songs, painting the rainbow using cotton buds, drawing the rainbow using chalk, placing counters along the rainbow and writing the colours of the rainbow.

                                                        

To learn how rainbows are formed, we conducted an experiment using Skittles (you read that right, SKITTLES. It was hard not to eat them). We placed the Skittles on a plate and poured warm water over them. Before we poured the water, we each made a prediction about what we thought would happen to the Skittles. These included, " The Skittles will change colour.", "The Skittles will go soft.", " The Skittles will pop!"

We discovered that the Skittles had lost their colour in the water to make a rainbow.
