We Love Rainbows!

01 November 2017

Over the past few weeks some of the Panda Cubs and the Raccoon Cubs have shown a strong interest in rainbows.

They have been busy singing songs about them, drawing and painting pictures of them and building them using different construction toys. Leo and Asia then started to draw rainbow flowers! Asia asked the question- ‘Are there real rainbow flowers?’ We decided to carry out a Science investigation to find out the answer.

The Panda Cubs and the Raccoon cubs carefully looked at some white roses. They described them as soft, tall and very white! Together they then conducted an investigation to find out if we could change the colour of the petals and make them look like the rainbow roses that Asia and Leo had drawn. They were able to take turns and handle the equipment carefully when pouring red, green and blue food colouring into some plastic pots. After cutting the stem into 3 parts the children placed one part of the stem into each of the pots. I was impressed with some of the children’s predictions…

‘The petal will go dark green as the coloured water is dark green.’ Owen

‘The water is moving up the flower and it will change colour.’ Angelina

After patiently waiting and watching the flowers, the Reception Cubs were thrilled with the results. They had changed the colour of the petals to make their very own rainbow flowers!
