Carrie's lesson- 5 yr olds
We talked about primary colours first and some of the children knew you couldn't make a primary. These were painted onto their colour wheel, leaving a space for the secondary colour. After a demonstration of colour mixing, the children had to make their own secondary colours from the primaries and fill the gaps, most had success with this task despite a few colours going in the wrong gap!
The next task was to write their name in large bubble writing, and colour with oil pastels using a range of primary and secondary colours.
After lunch we had A3 paper to fill with koru shapes (spirals) of all shapes and sizes. When they completed this, they chose their best designs to transfer onto a bookmark.
