I have been doing a project on myths and legends. Learning about ancient myths and old and new heroes.  I've learnt about creation myths, particularly the chinese myth of Pangu.I have also made up a creation myth, so thought I would share it with you.


In the beginning there was darkness and silence. Out of the darkness and silence there was a big multicoloured flash. A flash of blues, yellows, reds, greens and even colours you can’t imagine.

Over billions of years the multicoloured ball of colours split. The blue became the sky and the sea; the green became the fields and the forests; the brown became the earth and the mountains; the white became the snow and the ice; the yellow became the sunshine and the sand; and the red was kept for very special things like  reindeers’s noses and robin’s breasts.

The first men and women were created from colours, some brown; some white; some pink; some a beautiful blend creating beautiful people. Little droplets of colour created babies.  Animals were also created, grey for elephants; orange and gold for tigers and lions; brown and white for monkeys; black and white for zebras and penguins; mulitcoloured birds and fishes.

Every colour was perfectly placed, there was no pink elephants; no green people; no red snow; no blue sun or yellow moon. A beautiful world had been created.
