Cave paintings and colour wheels

As part of our topic, ‘Stronger Together’, the boys and girls have been learning about the Stone Age. This week, they have focused on Stone Age art. The children have learned about the importance of cave paintings to historians as a way of learning about life in the Stone Age and they explored the materials and tools Stone Age people would have used to create these pieces of art. The children then imagined they were in the Stone Age and had a go at decorating their ‘cave wall’.

Today, the children then thought about how this differs to the paints, materials and tools we have available to use. They explored the vast array of colours they are able to make from the 3 primary colours and learned about secondary and tertiary colours in order to create their own colour wheels.
