In Reception we have been exploring colour mixing. We have used poster paint to create new colours by magic mixing. We picked two primary colours, magic mixed and created a new secondary colour. We printed our findings on paper. Some children then explored mixing with powder paints during free flow.
We have used pastels in Reception to create self portraits. We made careful observations. We looked at our faces in the mirror. We also learned how to blend the colours.
To celebrate Remembrance Day every class in school created their own poppy wave. Each class used a different media to create a wave of poppies.
We created canvas paintings to celebrate the artists we had been learning about in class.
