Science Week in Reception

This week, we have been conducting a scientific enquiry to find out what would happen when we put a paper towel into two different colours of water. We had blue and yellow, red and blue and red and yellow. The children came up with lots of fantastic ideas, which were recorded on post-it’s. We observed the coloured water over time, travelling up the paper towels and discovered to our amazement that they mixed together to make three new colours. The yellow and blue made green, the red and blue made purple and the red and yellow made orange. Fantastic investigating Reception !
