Budding Scientists in Nursery.


We were very lucky to have Cameron’s mum, Mrs Howitt, who is a science teacher, come into Nursery this week to share experiments with us. She showed us one called “Walking Water “. We had to make ladders with absorbent kitchen paper and fold them over the edges of 6 cups which had been placed in a circle. We then poured coloured water into every second cup. We learnt that these are the primary colours, red, blue and yellow.

We then watched in amazement as the water crept up the paper and over the top of the cup into the neighbouring cup where it met the colour coming from the adjacent cup. The mixing of the colours made the secondary colours, green, orange and purple.

We were able to identify these new colours and point them out between the primary colours.

Thank you Mrs Howitt for sharing this fantastic experiment with us.
