W5Go! Colours Apps

W5GO’s Colour episode has been updated!

Included in the update: 

  • MORE COLOURS!
  • Interactive Animations
  • More Words to Learn
  • Augmented Reality Simulation of What uses colour
  • Virtual Reality Simulation of Colours around the Farm
  • Colour Test

Children start to notice colours around the age of 18 months, soon after they start being able to identify textures, shapes, and sizes. Most children are able to name one colour by 36 months, and by the time a child begins kindergarten, they are expected to identify and properly name basic colours (red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, black, white, brown, pink).

Colour Identification 

It is important to teach children that colour has no shape or size, it is simply what colour an object is. It can be difficult for some children to differentiate colours, shapes, and sizes as they are learning them all around the same time. In this application, there is a series of treasure hunts that will have the child identify many different objects by their colour.

Wheredoyoufindcolour

This episode aims towards teaching your child the basics of colours. The names, what makes colours, primary colours and how to identify colours. The easiest way for a child to learn and understand concepts is by interactive and repetitive learning, which could prove difficult for adults hearing the same songs, colours and numbers every day. We ensure all of our W5GO episodes are free from advertisement, no internet needed and have no in-app purchases. We make sure your child is having a safe learning experience. Therefore you can feel comfortable letting your child play through and explore our episodes on their own, over and over again until they fully understand the concepts.

How Do We See Colour? 

What makes colours? Your child will learn the basics of how light makes colour. When light is present colour is visible when the light is absent you do not see colour. When light hits an object, the object absorbs some of the light and reflects the rest and that is what you see. This is an interactive activity where the child will be able to adjust the lighting of the scene to visually see how light affects how we see colours.

Primary & Secondary Colours 

Learning the primary colours is a great base for a child to start to understand how colours work. In this episode, we explain what the primary colours are (Red, Yellow and Blue), how they cannot be made and how you can mix them together to create secondary colours.  This is portrayed through a fun animation followed by a paint by an activity where the child will have to colour in images with a selection of Primary or Secondary colours.

Colour Blindness

Within this episode, there is an interactive Ishihara test (Colour Blindness test). By playing through this application with your child, you may be able to help identify any sort of colour identification issues.  It is estimated that 4.5% of the world’s population is colourblind. It is most commonly found among men (1 in 12 males) and is fairly rare in women (1 in 200 females)(Colour Blind Awareness)

Ishihara_plates

Colour blindness is often a genetic condition inherited from their mothers’ side, other conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis can also contribute to a person having colour blindness. People with normal colour vision can see about one million distinct shades of colour, whereas colour blind people see only 5-10% of distinct shades.

It is often difficult to determine if a young child is colourblind or not since they are still learning the colours themselves. There are some signs to look out for such as;

  • Incorrectly identifying the colour of an object
  • Short attention span while practicing colours
  • Issues identifying Green or Red colour spectrums
  • Trouble differentiating coloured texts on a coloured page
  • Eye-Strain while working with colours

Although it is a concern that colour blindness will affect a child later in life, it is not something to worry about. A child is born with this condition and does not know any different than what they see. It may require some attention while in school, but will not be a factor in daily life.

If you suspect your child is colour blind consult a physician for a medical test.
