Pendulum Art in the Gallery

Last week some of the class worked in the playground to make some pendulum Art:

It was great fun and the results looked amazing when wet.

The pictures dried out and went a wee bit dull. We decided to brighten them up using snapseed on our iPads. We then put our pictures on the wall and looked at them. Can you work out how we did it?

Paper Plate Skulls

We took an idea from Darrell Wakelam to make some Day of the Dead skulls from paper plates.

We then took it a bit further taking photos of ourselves in front of the green screen. In Keynote we added backgrounds, our pictures and photos of our masks.

We used instant alpha to remove backgrounds to create interesting pictures.

A bit of fun but learning about layers and opacity. We also got the images from unsplash so they are copyright free. We also read about the the Day of the dead festival.

We told Darrell we had used his idea and this is what he said:

Biggies time at Dow’s woods

Today we went to Dow’s woods with the wee ones. We were all looking for signs of autumn. The biggies and the wee ones were partners. This is how our trip went …

Signs of autumn

When we were walking with our wee partners we were looking out for signs of autumn some of the sings we found were hazelnuts that had fallen of of a tree, brambles, rowan berries, and changing leaves some of these things we collected.  Also the biggies were looking out for trip hazards and eye hazards while we were walking with our wee buddies.

When we arrived to our spot

When we arrived to out usual spot in the woods we looked for more signs after that our wee buddies had to leave. Once they left we decided to draw a tree we each picked a tree to draw. We have to remember which tree we drew because we are going to go back and draw it in different seasons. When we were finished drawing we wrote some poems about our trees.

Games and chaos

When we finished drawing and writing we played some games the games we played were sardines. Which is where a couple of people hide and if you find a person you have to hide with them until eventually everyone is found. When I found someone they were lying down on the mud hiding so then I had to join them until their was three of us thankfully time was up. Then after that we ran all the way back to school.

I really enjoyed the wood especially getting to show the wee ones the wood since some of them have never seen it. I hope we do this again some time.

Rotary Competition for COP26 Conference

The objective is to raise awareness of Climate Change by inviting school children to design a poster on A4, which would convey their message to the world on what needs to be done to make the world a better and safer place for their generation.

P6-7 all had a go and we sent of a couple to the Rotary club last week. This fit in well with our learning about Climate Change this term.

Scribble Bots 2 – But is it Art?

We had great fun finishing of our scribble bots and making some “art”. We found that chunks of glue stick worked better than rubbers to keep the wobble going.

Is it Art? you be the judge:

We also used videos, pictures, drawing to write reports and instruction about Scribble Bots on our e-portfolios.
