Colour Spinners

Colour Spinners

We have learned a lot about light.

We know that white light is made of the 7 colours of the rainbow (we discovered this when we used prisms to break the white light into its colours).

We know that sometimes when things move very quickly they look quite different.

This is how television works.

If we spin two colours very quickly we can see another colour.

(for example blue and red spun quickly together look purple etc)
We wondered what would happen if you spun all 7 colours of the rainbow together.

Will you get white light? or brown light (like mixing paint)?

Of course we had to try this for ourselves…….

We tried lots of different colour combinations, then made our own colour spinners, which reminded us of fidget spinners so……..

we made our own fidget spinners too.

School is so much fun!
