Mr Shingler's PE challenge part 2

Physical development
Let's start the day with a warm up by taking part in Mr Shingler's P.E. challenge

Today we are going to focus on colours

We are going to learn about hot colours and cold colours.

  • Red, orange and yellow are hot colours.  Sometimes a hot water tap has a red spot on to let you know that the water is hot.

Yellow is like the hot sunshine and orange and red are like a burning fire

  • Blue, purple (indigo) and green are cold colours 

Sometimes a cold water tap has a blue spot on it to let you know the water is cold.

Blue is like the cold deep blue sea - how cold is the sea when you go for a paddle.

Mouse Paint

Mouse Paint, book written and illustrated by Ellen Stoll Walsh, read by Mrs. F. This story follows three mice in their adventures of paint mixing to make new colours and ways to stay away from the cat!

Expressive Art and Design

Today let's paint.  Have a go at mixing hot and cold colours to make and paint using new colours.

Listen to the story of 'Mouse Paint' watch the mice dance in puddles of paint to make new colours.

The mice mix:

  • red and yellow to make orange
  • red and blue to make purple
  • blue and yellow to make green


Have a go at using paint to mix and make new colours.  

See if you can use your new colours to paint a lovely picture.

Please do email me pictures of your work.  I really love to see what you are doing at home.



Literacy Writing

Write your name on your paper before you begin on the top left hand side of the wrong side.

Be an artist and when you have finished painting sign your name on the right side of your painting.  Artists always sign their name on their paintings,

Look at all the colours - there are so many different shades of all the colours.
Perhaps you can use white paint to make lighter shades or black paint to make darker shades.
