Colour

For our first art lesson of the spring term we were looking at colours. We had a discussion at the beginning of the lesson to see how many colours we could think of in our groups. As a class we thought of almost 20 different colours. These included colours such as turquoise, magenta, maroon and lilac! This then lead to our discussion and our main learning point for the lesson about primary and secondary colours. 

We found out that the primary colours are red, blue and yellow. These colours cannot be made using any other colours. Then we introduced the term secondary colours and discussed how secondary colours are made by mixing 2 different primary colours together to make our secondary colours.  

We discovered this… 

Red + Blue = Purple 

Yellow + Red = Orange 

Blue and Yellow = Green 

We then had a go at mixing the primary colours ourselves to make our secondary colours. We also discussed how we might get different shades of secondary colours and that would depend on the amount of our primary colours we add.
