Recycling art – Jar Tealights

On Friday we made some tealight holders by re-using glass jars we had been collecting. We covered them with squares of tissue paper and a thin layer of watered down glue. We added some sequin sparkles around the top to make them look even more special. Keep looking out for more recycled art over the coming weeks!

This Superstar liked them so much she went home and made her own!

Look what I made!

2 Graph

We have been learning how to draw bar graphs correctly from information we have gathered in a table. Today we used a computer program called 2 Graph to display information we had gathered in our class surveys.

We also looked at how we could display the same information in different ways such as pie charts and line graphs.

Mind Mapping

Our Mind Map

 
Today we brainstormed what rubbish is and made a class mind map. We will be using our mind map to ask questions and research what really is rubbish and what we can do to reduce, re-use, recycle and compost our waste.

More planting

Careful measuring required!

Some of us visited the allotment on Tuesday with Mrs Finlayson and Mrs Stewart to plant some onions. You can see our new raised beds in the photographs.

We took our rulers and had to check that we were planting them 10cms apart.

I wonder what we will plant next?

Arbroath Video

Outside the Signal Tower Museum.

On Monday, we continued to make our video about Arbroath for our wiki. A small group of us visited Gayfield, Pleasureland and the Signal Tower Museum. Unfortunately, everything seems to be closed or empty at the moment but we are doing our best!

A lot of rubbish!

Our new topic is a lot of rubbish! We will be learning all about recycling and why we should be doing it. Keep checking back to see what we are up to.

Here is a wee game to get us started. Can you sort the rubbish?

Allotment

We'll be growing some of these!

A wee group of us went over to the allotment at lunchtime with Mrs Stewart and Mrs Finlayson. We dug another trench and planted some more potatoes.

We are really excited because the raised beds are going to be built next week.

Ready for work.

Working together.

World Book Day

A friendly scarecrow!

Who's this scary witch?

Yesterday was World Book Day.  We were able to come to school dressed as book characters.  We had a special box of books delivered to our classroom which we could choose to read from all week.  The whole school has been taking part in a sponsored reading project to try to raise money for more reading books for the school.

Six princesses and a Spongebob!

We made 3D collages of people reading for a new display outside the ICT suite.
