Art Attack!

We have been making the most of our talent this year to explore two very different artistic styles. We have used the art and design skills of Scotland’s own Charles Rennie MacIntosh to create the beautiful McIntosh Rose, and the Pointillisme dot-colouring technique of French Impressionist Georges Seurat to create stunning Sunflowers.

Damian Callan Birthday Exhibition

Our art club volunteer, muralist and local artist Damian Callan, will soon be celebrating a big birthday with an exhibition. Many of our children have worked with Damian and so may be particularly interested in attending.

He writes,

(If I haven’t already done so) I would like to let you know about my 60th Birthday Exhibition from 11th – 17th December 2020 at the Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh. I am borrowing around 35 paintings that depict Ruth and the children over the past 25 years. I will also be exhibiting a further 30 new drawings and paintings alongside the ‘retrospective’ selection.

The Tiger Who Came to P1/2

This week we have been busy in P1/2….Image.jpeg…exploring the book “The Tiger Who Came To Tea” by Judith Kerr.

The children all thought long and hard about why a tiger might want to come for tea and come up with some brilliant suggestions.

We have used our writing and drawing skills to produce shopping lists for Sophie and her Mum to replace all the food the tiger ate and also wrote thank you speech bubbles from the tiger.

The children loved making tigers during craft time. Have a look at our fabulous work! 

P2 Haved Dived Into Their Under The Sea Topic

Here are some pictures to show you what P2 have been learning in their Under the Sea topic this term so far!

We made some jiggly jellyfish using paper plates and bubble wrap.  We also used bubble wrap to create bumpy prints on starfish and tissue paper to create colourful fish.

We have talked about many ways to stay safe at the beach and made posters to warn others.

Next week, we will be learning about the difference between sharks and whales!
