A colourful start!

The children in year 1 have had a brilliant start to their second year in school. The children have been immersed in the book, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and have been inspired to create artwork just like Eric Carle. The children were challenged by one of our school drivers, Enquiry man, to see what happened when they mixed different colours. After creating some fantastic colour wheels it was lovely to hear the children using the language of ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ colours. The children also learnt about tones and tints. They explored adding different quantities of black and white paint to see what happened. After washing paper with the different shades of green, the children collaborated together to create a fantastic Hungry Caterpillar. Well done year 1!
