In our tuff tray we had a bucket of red, blue, yellow and white paint, and using pipettes had great fun mixing the colours on the mats to see how many other colours we could make.
We have carried out no less than three science investigations in class. Firstly, we wanted to find out what colours are mixed to make black. We each drew a circle using a black felt tip pen onto a white tissue, this was then placed into a glass of water. We were very surprised to see that as the tissue absorbed the water different colours such as red, blue and purple started climbing to the top of the tissue. Once we dried our tissues we cut out a fish template and made them into a shoal of rainbow fish!
Using the same method of tissue absorbing water, we grew our own class rainbow by colouring the bottom of a paper towel and dipping the ends into glasses of water.
The skittle science investigation, however, was by far our favourite! There were squeals of delight and excitement as the warm water coated the different colour sweets and it made a colourful rainbow in the middle of the plate.
In music this week, Karam brought in a two-headed hand drum called a Dholki and showed us how it is played using the beaters – we enjoyed joining in with the beat.,
Our topic next week is Superheroes!
