Check out our Natural Art inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. We collected natural materials such as sticks, flowers and leaves. We did not pick living things as we are learning to look after and care for nature.
We worked in groups to create our own unique designs. We are very proud of what we created.
Our topic in maths over the next few weeks will be Angles. This week we looked for right angles in our Environment. We found right angles all around us, including on our picnic bench, planters, windows and many more!
Then in pairs, using sticks we created our own squares and rectangles and then used cubes to show the right angles on our shapes.
Here are some snapshots of our learning from our ‘Rainforest’ topic.
We have been learning about the different layers of the rainforest and created our own models for our homework project . Our challenge was to use only recyclable and reusable items! What creative and innovative designs – well done to everyone! We enjoyed sharing our models with our classmates and with parents at sharing the learning.
We have also been learning about deforestation! We wrote persuasive letters to companies using palm oil to share our opinions and persuade them to stop!
We Created our ‘Party in the jungle’ Artwork for the art gallery which we are all very proud of!
Here are some photos from our ‘Time Travellers’ topic
We learned all about life in Dunblane in the past and how people lived.
We were very lucky to have a visit from Pam who used to work in the old Springbank Mill. Pam shared lots of interesting facts and stories with us. We also worked with P2/3 and learned to weave together which was lots of fun!
We learned about famous scots such as Robbie Burns and Charles Rennie Mackintosh who continue to inspire others today through their work in the past. We created our own Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired artwork which we were very proud of.
This afternoon P3/4W worked together to make these Roman Spiers! It was tricky but we used our growth mindsets and encouraged each other. We were pleased with the results. Our spiers will be on display at our Roman museum during our next sharing the learning event.
