The Rainbow                 

Some of you may be very familiar with this image of a rainbow. It has become a very important symbol of these times with a lot of children from around the world placing rainbows in their windows.

           

However, why and when does a rainbow appear?

This short video might help to explain:

Can you remember all the colours of the rainbow?

This video might help:

You could practice learning the colours by playing the games on this website:

Here are some crafts for you to try:

      or     

For both of these you will need a paper plate or semi-circle of card (could be from a cereal box?) along with tissue paper, colouring pens or pencils or perhaps paint with some cotton ball clouds to finish it off.

You might also like to try a Rainbow Treasure Hunt – you could make a sheet up like this to help you:

Finally, we can’t end our rainbow lesson without hearing the most famous rainbow song from the movies:

Hope you enjoyed learning about the rainbow!

Have a ball! Painting!

As today is Sports Day at Pinewood I thought it may be fun to create artwork that encourages you to play and be active.

Materials needed: various balls, poster paints, paper

Method:

For this activity you could use a tennis ball, golf ball, marbles etc. Roll the ball(s) in paint and then have fun rolling over a piece of a paper. Try and go in different directions. An idea is to make a ramp going into a box. Attached a piece of paper and roll the balls down the ramp. This might be a tidier option!
