In 5/6 we have been learning about light, and all the ways light travels, bends and is reflected.

Today we learnt about white light. White light is made up of all the colours of the rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. When white light hits a certain object the light is split up into all of its colours and is what we see as a rainbow.

We decided to try it our self’s. We used a mirror, white paper, and a jug filed with water.

Here are some of our rainbows.
