As part of the class context for learning on toys Primary 1 H and 1G visited a Lego Exhibition at Perth Museum . The children had a great day out looking at all the fantastic models of famous landmarks from around the world. They also had a hands on session creating their own models. We ended the day with a picnic and trip to the park .
On Friday the 10th of February, Primary P1G and Primary IH went on a trip to Dykedale woods. They enjoyed the walk up to the woods and back despite the cold and damp conditions! The children were in groups with an allocated parent helper and then worked together to create pieces of transient art. We had previously explored different aspects of art work by Andy Goldsworthy to stimulate ideas. The children enjoyed using creating with natural materials.
Primary 1H and Primary 1G hosted a whole school assembly on materials. The children presented a talk about what they had learned about context. After investigating the different properties , they looked at how we recycle. They created their own costumes with recycled materials and then performed a fashion show on the stage. They looked fantastic in their creations which included bow ties, dresses, bags and even kilts!
Primary 1G and Primary 1H are currently investigating the context of toys. The children will be exploring where toys come from, how they work and comparing old and new toys. The children have enjoyed setting up toys shops in the classrooms.
