Task 1: Science
LO: To investigate how light is made of a spectrum of colours
Have you been lucky enough to spot a rainbow in your life? Usually they come out on rainy days while the sun is shining bright, but maybe you’ve seen one while running through the sprinkler on a hot summer day. But how do rainbows happen? The video above shows how you can create your very own homemade rainbow. Here’s what you’ll need:
White sheet of paper
Clear glass or plastic cup
Sunny day (or a flashlight)
Method (what to do) The video below will explain these points!
Concept (results and findings)
Sunlight may not seem very colorful, but it is actually made up of many colors even if we can’t see them all the time. When sunlight hits the water in the glass, the light rays are bent and separated based on their wavelengths.
This bending is called refraction and it happens anytime light passes through water. When we see rainbows outside, they happen because of water in the air that is refracting the light and creating a large, colorful spectacle.
Task 2: RE/PSHE/ART
LO: To create a window rainbow to support others
Please could you create me a 'Chase the Rainbow' piece of artwork for a front window in your house, to help brighten your neighbours, passers-by and community spirit during this difficult time. You can draw, paint, colour, make or build any size of rainbow that you wish. Many families around the country have already taken part in this beautiful gesture, so i would love it if we could too!
When yo have finised (if you can) please email me a picture of your rainbow as I'd love to see what you have created! I will make one too and share them all on our class page, I cannot wait to see your creations!
