Year 3 had an exciting (messy!) afternoon today exploring colour. We discussed what colour ‘light’ was and had lots of interesting responses including yellow, peach and see through! We then learnt that visible light is actually made up of seven different colours and that when light is bent through a prism it causes the light to split into different colours! The children then had fun exploring with these colours, mixing the primary colours red, blue and yellow to create secondary and tertiary colours.

  1. The children may be able to help us in Year 5 next week as we explore shading when we recreate an African sunset across the Savannah!
