A "wheel" good art lesson in Class LH

Class LH have used the theme of the 'Tour of Britain' to design their own colour wheels.  Firstly, the children chose one of the primary colours and then added a touch of white paint to the base colour filling in each spoke as they went.  Eventually, the wheel was complete to create a full colour wheel from the original primary colour to a much paler version. 

We then used these wheels to design our own bikes which we would ride for the 'Tour of Britain' race.  We all had a go at cutting out the bikes and although it was tricky we persevered!  The colour wheels were then attached using a split pin so the wheels actually turn.

It was "wheel" fun creating the colour wheels for each of the primary colours and our peloton is now racing across our walls.
