In Year 1 we read the book 'Mix it Up' by Herve Tullet. We then explored colour mixing. We used the primary colours blue, red and yellow to make our own secondary colours: orange, green and purple.

Children learnt how to add white to make a tone and black to make a shade. We studied the colour wheel and discussed warm and cool colours, noticing how colours on the opposite side of the colour wheel compliment each other. Pupils made their own paper using warm colours and cool colours. 

Last week Year 1 learnt how to weave paper through a black card loom using the coloured papers they had made. We think they look really effective!
