Students were asked to find an inspiring natural object from the playground. They then experimented with mixing paints to create an exact colour match. They recorded the original colours used, along with a swatch of their new colour. These new colour inventions were then given unique names (‘Dragon’s Eye’ and ‘Hardcore Rock’ were my personal favourites). The perfect activity for the changing colours of Autumn and it also connected beautifully to our learning around colours as adjectives.
