Today Base 4 practised fractions outside in the eco garden. We made halves and quarters using sticks, stones, our own bodies and other items in the playground.
Base 2 celebrated the end of their topic about France with a French breakfast for family and friends. Camembear made a guest appearance and parents had the chance to see the children’s work. We all enjoyed baguettes, croissants, brioche, cheese and jam. Thank you for your support with homework challenges and kind comments.
Base 5 were playing tic tac toe with hoops and coloured bibs this week in P.E. We were working together in teams to get three coloured bibs in a row. It involved lots of running back and forth. Trying to think about the best next move for our own team but also watch what the other team were doing was a challenge. It was a work out for both our body and mind. It was great fun!
We had fun learning about the famous French artist, Georges Seurat (1859 -1891). He invented Pointillism which is using dots of colour to create pictures. We tried to copy this style by using cotton buds and paint palettes and also felt pens. Some groups were in the French cafe ordering baguettes and some were working on jigsaws from around the world. What a busy afternoon in Base 2!
Camembear is helping Base 2 to learn French. He will be visiting everyone’s house to see how Scottish people live and to practise French. He has his own suitcase and he has a diary to fill out each day. So far he has been swimming, dancing, playing football and been to a party! He is loving his stay in Scotland.
