Art Activities

All of the Primary 4 pupils have had the opportunity to become sculptures during their art rotation time.  We looked at works from the artist Alberto Giacometti and made figures in the same style. Who knew how tricky tin foil would be to sculpt!! Here are some pictures of us hard at work and the end result.

P.4E’s Mummification Experiment

We have been waiting patiently this week to discover the results of our apple mummification experiment.

We sliced an apple into 4 equal pieces and covered one in vinegar, one in Bicarbonate of Soda and one in salt, we also left one slice with nothing on it. Then we discussed which substance would best mummify the apple. There were lots of great ideas and reasons.

Here are our results…

Here are some pictures of us working on our report and examining the apple slices.

We now think we would be able to mummify an ancient Egyptian!!

Poppy Art for Remembrance Day

All P4 pupils have been working on poppy artwork using a variety of art materials.

We looked at the American artist Georgia O’Keefe, who specialised in close ups of flowers and pastelled, painted or collaged our own poppies in her style.

Here are some of our designs, we hope you enjoy looking at them…

We also had some very creative Lego engineers who created some Lego poppies.

If you are in our school please look out for our Poppy display.
