Steven Brown Visit

We have just had a lovely visit from local artist Steven Brown.

Steven answered all of our questions and told us all about his famous paintings. 

We showed Steven the art work we have created based on his work.

He loved them!!!


He then very kindly gave us all a signed copy of his new colouring book 🙂

We couldn’t wait to get started on our favourite pieces

These are the questions we asked Steven …

Do you draw first and then paint? CM

Where do you get your ideas from? LO

How do you focus? AG

Why do you choose bright colours? MD

Is it easy or hard to paint the animals? MYC

How do you paint the colours so neatly? KD

How do you stay in the lines? LD

Do you work independently? HA

Telling the Time

For Outdoor Learning today we had lots of fun playing time games. First we played days of the week hopscotch

Then we had to find the months of the year that were hidden all around the playground. We had to identify which month special events happen and also find our birthday month.

After that we got busy making our own clocks and testing each other to make different times

We then made a huge clock

and finished off our lesson with a game of

‘Whats the time Mr Wolf?!’

MD “I liked playing Whats the time Mr Wolf?’

ES “I liked making the clocks and playing Mr Wolf”

KS “I liked making the clock because we got to use twigs for the clock hands. I liked playing the big clock game but the wind kept blowing the hands!”

MYC “I liked using our little clocks and making the time with them”

LT “It was fun playing the game when we moved the big clock hands”

OL “I enjoyed playing whats the time Mr Wolf – I was the fastest”

HA “I enjoyed all of it!”

LO “I had fun playing the clock game”

Personal Projects

P1-3 have been working hard at home researching a country and finding facts to share with the rest of the class. Pupils chose their own way of presenting the information they found … we even got to try shortbread and fortune cookies! Yum!

Well done everyone! Projects are now proudly displayed in the gym hall 🙂

Here is what the pupils enjoyed about their homework task …

“I enjoyed colouring in the great wall of china and I loved trying the fortune cookies” KS

“I like my castle and Scotland flag. I liked colouring in with Gran.” ES

“I liked putting Luigi and Mario on my poster because they come from Italy” MD

“I liked helping Mum make my poster” MYC

“I liked making the poi and showing it to the class. I liked typing on the PowerPoint” OL

” I liked wearing the hat and all of it” HA
