Exploring Science and Rainbows with Smarties and Water in K3

Have you ever wondered how colors mix and move? In K3, we recently conducted a science experiment that involved Smarties and water, and we were thrilled with the results. Our aim was to observe how the colours in the Smarties faded and migrated, forming a beautiful rainbow of hues.

To conduct the experiment, we placed Smarties in a circular pattern on a white plate and added a few drops of water. As the water spread, the colors on the Smarties started to dissolve and mix. We observed how the water changed colour as it picked up the pigments from the Smarties, and how the colours migrated from the Smarties to the surrounding water.

We were amazed by how the colors blended and created new shades, just like a rainbow. We even remembered the names of the colors as we watched them dissolve and mix. It was so much fun to see the different colours emerge and change over time.

This experiment was not only entertaining, but it also helped us understand the science behind color mixing and migration. It was a great way to explore science and learn something new while having fun.

Discovering Nature’s Inhabitants: Our School’s Bughotel Project


We’re thrilled to announce that a group of 6th graders recently built in Science a bughotel and hung it up in front of the vegetable gardens of K3, K4 and K5 at our school. They also took the time to explain the concept to their younger peers in K3, K4, and K5. The bughotel was designed to attract a variety of insects, larvae, and caterpillars, and we’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of these new hosts.

The students put a lot of thought and effort into creating this bughotel, and their enthusiasm for learning about nature and its diverse inhabitants is truly inspiring. We believe that hands-on learning experiences like this can help students develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world around them.

We’re excited to see what kinds of creatures will call our bughotel home and look forward to observing and learning from them. Stay tuned for updates on the exciting new guests of our bughotel!
