Tuesday 10th January 2012 – Year 4 Discover Hot and Cold Colours
Year 4 have been looking at hot and cold colours and how different colours used in pictures and paintings can make people feel when they look at them.
They began by making a list of hot and cold colours and then using a colour wheel to see how these colours change from bright to dark to create the desired effect. They then looked at some ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ pictures and discussed how they felt when they looked at them.
Finally, they began to experiment with mixing the primary colours together to create different shades and ‘warmth’ of each colour.
