At the moment we are talking about colours in class. We have been wearing the colour of the day, eating food of the corresponding colour (black proved to be impossible!) and enjoying lots of colour learning experiences.
As we immerse ourselves in each primary colour I have been extending the activities to introduce colour mixing. I love hearing the squeals of excitement when the children discover the colour they have created! We tried to use different painting utensils for each experiment and still need to mix black and white paint tomorrow...
