Term 1: Autumn 2021: Colour and Light: Instructions here

Hi everyone! Welcome back to another fantastic school year.
Following on from the huge success with our 'at home science challenges' we are going to continue them this year.
Here is our term one challenge - it is a physics challenge linked to colour and light. Remember to send any photos or videos to me (Miss Wilson) or your class teacher and certificates will be awarded at the end of term.
This challenge is for everyone

V completed his science challenge, super job! - click to view the video

N and T thought about the colours and made links to rainbows while all so thinking about visual perception. Super science boys.
R and G created some great spinners and really enjoyed themselves

'What fun to see the whole family getting involved! Well done the Kanth family for completing the science challenge '

'A very happy J completing her science challenge' and 'What a super colour wheel from H in Reception.'
