Primary colours

Today in Art we learnt how to use primary colours to make secondary colours. We learnt that red and blue make purple, yellow and blue make green and red and yellow make orange. We then practiced adding white and black to colours to see what happened. Finally, Miss Williams challenged us to find out which colours would mix to make peach, cream and brown. We thought it was great fun!

Rainforest art

Today we learnt about different art that tribes living in the rainforest produce. We learnt that they use the materials of the rainforest to make different sorts of art. They use wood, feathers, body paint and leaves to decorate themselves and their houses. They also make things they can use like baskets and blowpipes.

We learnt they use clay from the ground to make coil pots then we practiced making our own. It was great fun and very messy!
