Our Nursery pupils visited the Physics Department on Wednesday 22 January to learn more about rainbows.

During the lesson, the pupils met Mr Ford, Head of Physics, who spoke to them about how rainbows are made, before demonstrating and giving the children a chance to make their own colourful creations.

Speaking about the visit, Nursery teacher Ms Leane, said: This term, Nursery have been very excited to share everything they know about rainbows.

'The children have been making rainbows by drawing, painting and even making rainbows with their bodies. In lessons, they have shared their theories about how rainbows are made, which have included fairy dust, sun and rain and that they grow from colourful seeds.

‘The children were amazed that we could make rainbows inside and we didn’t need rain. It was a fantastic experience and they returned to their class to share their learning and ask more questions about rainbows.’
