Science - The Spectrum of Light
This lesson will be hard for you to achieve at home unless you have a prism! I have found some videos instead if you cannot achieve the outcomes.
If this hot weather continues, you might be able to make a rainbow using the garden hose. Every night I water my garden, I know the exact place where I can spray the water and the sunlight splits the light into the spectrum. Have a go!

What Colour Is Light?
What colour do you believe light to be?
Look at who Isaac Newton was, using the Lesson Presentation, and find out what his investigation using a prism to alter a ray of light was.
Prisms: Explain what a prism is using the Lesson Presentation. Recall your earlier work on refraction, and explain that a prism refracts light, causing it to bend.
Use a torch to shine a ray of light through a prism, holding a piece of white card in front of the refracted ray of light as it leaves the prism. You should see the light ray split into the colours of the spectrum. If you cannot do this, watch the video above and you will see what happens the light.
