The Colour Purple
This week whilst you are out on one of your daily walks to keep fit and mentally healthy, look out for things that are purple.
We have looked for the primary colours already blue, red and yellow. they are primary colours because we can't mix them form other colours. This week we start our walk looking for secondary colours. If your mix blue and red together you get purple.
Here is what I have been able to find to the off our colour purple collection. Please feel free to use our collection and add your own. Please send your photos in if you have something interesting we don't already have.
So, what are we going to do with our purple photographs. You can do just one or all of the following activities.
Remember to ask permission before you print off the photographs. If you can not print them off don't worry - use them as reference and write the name of the item in to your work.
Find as many examples of purple as you can out side and inside and make a collage. You can do this either by printing off the photographs and cutting them up and sticking them down on paper. Using Word to place them in a nice arrangement. Use power point to rotate them or use them as your screen saver for this week.
2. History and Geography
Make a project about purple. Investigate where purple is used in art, where any purple pigments comes from? What does the colour purple signify in a painting.
3. Design and Technology
Make a colour chart with your paints. Start with a purple make with equal blue and red at the top and and a little bit of water to it. Then make a swipe of paint at top of the paper, adding a little bit more water as you go down until the last swipe on the paper is almost clear with a very small hint of colour in it.
Make a bar chart putting all the purple things found outside in as the first data point, all the purple things found inside your house as the second.
Investigate how the colour purple was made in the past.
Make a number of Top Trump cards with the names of purple
Here is the start of our purple collection.
