Light and How We See Things

Our science topic this half term is all about light and how we see things. In our science lesson last week we used prisms to investigate how we can see rainbows and how light is actually made up of 7 different colours (rather than being white, like we first thought). Can you remember which colours light is made up of? Can you remember which scientist discovered this?

    I really enjoyed finding out how a rainbow is made. The 7 different colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, some people remember them as ROY G BIV. Isaac Newton was the first scientist who discovered a rainbow is made from 7 colours.

    Light is made of seven colours which are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Isaac Newton discovered the colours of light. I can’t wait to do more of this. Thank you for this topic Mrs Calland. By Tosin

    In year 6 we learned about how we see thing and we did an investigation on how see a rainbow.We had a torch and a prism which is see through and we shined the torch on the prism and it then made a rainbow.If you wanted to know the colours of the rainbow they were in this order Red,Orange,Yellow,Green,Blue,Indigo and violet. The scientist who discovered light was Isaac Newton even though he also found out about Gravity.

    I learned a lot in that lesson about how we see things. I manged to make the rainbow and saw most of the colours of the rainbow. Light is made up of ROYGBIV which is short for the colours red,orange,yellow,green,blue,indigo and violet. The scientist who discovered light and how many colours in in light was Sir Isaac Newton. The lesson was really fun and I hope to have the lesson again

    Today we was learning about light ( how we see things) and our eyes (pupils, eyes). Are eyes are just behind the iris and pupil lies the lens, which helps focus light on the back of your eye. Most of the eye is filled with a clear gel ,witch looks a little bit like glass or plastic, called the vitreous. Light projects through your pupil and lens to the back of the eye. The inside the line of the eye is covered by special light-sensing cells that are called the retina. It converts light into impulses. Behind the eye, your optic nerve carries these impulses to the brain. The macula is a small extra-sensitive area in the retina that gives your main vision. Eye colour is created by the amount and type of pigment in your iris. Did you know that light travels at a speed of about 300,000 km. The light is made up of these colours:
    • red
    • orange
    • yellow
    • green
    • blue
    And how we remember this is with a rhyme: ROY G. BIV

    This half term we have been learning about light and rainbows. Isaac Newton was the first scientist to discover light and made up the seven colours of the rainbow and how they are formed. All the rainbows mix together to make light. The colours are red orange yellow green light blue dark blue and purple.
