Our Current Topic is 'How many colours in a rainbow?'


Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high… How many colours are in a rainbow? What happens when you mix red and blue? It’s time to discover the colours of the natural and man-made worlds.


This half term, we’ll learn how to identify the colours of the rainbow, how colours can mix together to make new colours, and about the relationship between light and colour, by exploring exciting toys. In our literacy lessons, we’ll read vibrant books, match colourful rhymes and make multicoloured marks. Can we write our names using all the colours of the rainbow? Using our mathematical skills, we’ll count colourful pom-poms and respond to numbers. We’ll also go on a colour hunt, carry out colour investigations and sing a rainbow!


Help your child prepare for their project
Soak up the marvellous colours of the world around you! Why not taste the rainbow together and gather together yummy foods of different colours? Does red taste nicer than green? Which colours are natural? You could also go on a colour walk around your local area. Which colours do you see the most? Do these colours change throughout the year? Alternatively, express yourself with paints, crayons, pencils and pens. Can you use colours to show how you feel today?


This project runs for the second half of the Autumn term. Below are a list of ideas for our project, try one of these or something else project related.


  • Add some food colouring to a tray of water, use some cups and spoons to transport the water 

  • Create some funky patterns – spotty, stripy, zigzag 

  • Make a rainbow together, you could paint or draw one, or find different coloured clothes to make a big rainbow 

  • Go for a walk together, what colours can you see

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts. 


At Ash Grange we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers therefore we ask that your child is dressed in appropriate clothing suitable for the various activities and all weathers.


Please remember in case of accidents and wet play all children need

  • a spare set of clothes and pants which remain at school
  • Wellies
  • No laces on shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age
  • On swimming days we are ask Nursery 2 to wear easy to dress clothes such as jogging bottoms and top.

Tapestry is a communication app for Early Years Families, to share targets, progress and achievements in their Learning Journey. Parents can use this to share achievements at home. Families are provided with a unique login. 

Please contact the school office if you need support.
