Printing with fruit and vegetables

Our theme is the Hungry Caterpillar. We were able to identify some fruits and vegetables and use these to complete some art work. We cut up the fruit and vegetables and dipped them in paint and made printing patterns on the paper. We investigated the print in made. Some worked better than others. We really liked the pear shape it made. We used carrots, potatoes, apples and pears.

 

Our Favourite Weather!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Bluebells class gathered information from all of the pupils and staff in Willowbank school. We went round all the classes and asked everyone what their favourite weather was.

We counted our findings and put these on 3 charts. One showing the Infant corridor’s favourite, one showing the Middle Primary’s favourite and one showing the Secondary Department’s favourite.

Fun in India

The Beech class are in India this week as part of our mini-topic.  We have had great fun exploring the culture of India and Hinduism through the arts and story telling.

  We made our own rangoli patterns using dyed salt.

 We learned about the Taj Mahal and other religious buildings that are in India.

  We made diva lamps after learning all about the Festival of Light – Diwali

 

 Skye helped to make home-made playdough and used lentils to make a Mandala style pattern on it.

 

We also read and role-played the story of Rama and Sita before exploring the festival of Diwali and learning about the different Hindu Gods.

Theme: Edible Paint and Shopping

*Successful Learners*   *Responsible Citizens*

The Moonbeams have worked hard this week during their Food and Technology theme lessons. We made edible paint by mixing sugar, water and food colourings. The children then decorated slices of bread with a variety of paint colours. Take a look at our beautiful designs.

We went to Tesco for our outing this week. The children choose a snack and drink in the Café and then went shopping with our pictorial shopping list. They used their counting skills to count the items and count the pound coins as we were paying. We had a very successful day out and the children all behaved very responsibly.

FAOL – OUTDOOR LEARNING

Yesterday we explore our school garden and collected. We then used the leaves we collected to create either a hedgehog or an owl. We used glue and stuck them on our picture. We were looking at the many different colours of leaves in the garden when we were collected them trying to get lots of different colours.
