Colour Mixing


Children have enjoyed finding out about primary colours and experimenting mixing these to make secondary colours.  We linked this with our ‘Great Fire of London’ topic and made watercolour washes to make a warm background.  To add texture, we added dots of red and yellow paint and covered the paper with cling film then carefully massaged together to create flames in the sky.  We are going to use this colour mixing knowledge to create pictures with cold colours linked with our English story ‘Lost and Found’.
