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.


Book of the Week

Hi my name is Danielle and this week’s “Book of the Week” is Fairest of all  by Serena Valentino.

I would highly recommend this book to ages 10+. This book is about the evil queen from the movie “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. It’s about her side of the story, why and how she became evil. 

This is a book that I have found difficult to put down.

If you have read this book leave a comment below.
