🌈 What Have Primary 3 Been Doing this Week? Friday 9th October

We have been exploring a range of art materials for our ‘Wonderful World’ topic. We have used water colours and pastels this week.  We have completed ‘Wonderful Me’ and ‘Wonderful Plants’ so far. The art work in Primary 3 is awesome!  We hope you like the photos!

Adam enjoyed using the water colours.  ‘I liked using the paints because they were fun and good.’

Using the water colours was relaxing but as you can see from the photos it also made everyone concentrate and pay attention to the detail in their paintings.

Everyone listened and worked hard.

‘I liked using the paints best because I liked mixing the paints on the palette.’ Isabella  

We also used pastels this week.  

‘I really liked using the pastels because every bit I smudged looked realistic.’  Megan T

‘I liked using the pastels because it was satisfying.’ Ciara

We started to making our ‘Wonderful Me’ display. Here are some of the self portraits. We used felt tips to make these.

Thomas said, ‘I like using the felt tip pens best in Art because they are easier to draw with.’

Look out for all of the self-portraits next week!

Have a well-deserved holiday week! Ms Short  🌈


🌈 What Have Primary 3 Been Doing this Week? 2nd October

We have been learning to draw flowers as part of our ‘Wonderful Plants’ expressive arts work. We used a YouTube video to  practise drawing daisies and chrysanthemums. Here are some of our pictures. We haven’t finished them all yet so more to come next week.

We looked carefully at real flowers and tried to sketch them so that we can paint them next week. We talked about lines, colours and shapes. We are going to explore different art resources. We will be using water colours, pencils, wax crayons and pastels.  Here are some of the real flowers we are trying to sketch and paint.

We had to observe the flowers carefully and concentrate on our drawing. Everyone paid attention to what they were doing. Great job, Primary 3! I can’t wait to see the finished results!

🌈We have been talking more about being back at school and learning. Here are some of the things people have to say at Pupil Voice Time.  We do Pupil Voice Time at least once a week.

I have learned how to be a good writer and how to do dot to dots.    Rhys

We have been doing lots of ‘Circle Time’ and ‘Pupil Voice’ activities for Health and Wellbeing.  We have been learning to speak out and give our opinions.
