Colour is all around us but what makes it and how does it get there?

Energy - Light, Colours and Rainbows

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with light energy, colours and the rainbow.

Light is an energy. It brightens up the world. It lets us see the world around us. But light is also colourful. At home and at school you will have done colouring and used paints. Colours make things look smart. There is colour all around us. Flowers make gardens bright. Rainbows in the sky are beautiful. This quiz is all about light energy, and the colours of the rainbow.
