Sneaking, giving, walking

Land Art in the woods with P7

Primary 7 worked collaboratively in the Cooperative home teams to gather materials in the woods and use them to make dragons.

The pupils had to work together to make a “frantic dragon” – the dragons had to made within the 8 minute time limit.

To succeed pupils needed to create an amazing dragon as well as work collaboratively to share ideas.

Look at what they produced…..

P2 were very excited to meet Gail Watson, who pays Katie Morag’s Mum on the television series. Gail is Arran from P2 and Lori from P3’s father’s cousin. She kindly came in and brought us lots of pictures to look at and answered lots of our questions. She told us lots of secrets like there are 2 actors who play Katie Morag!IMGP0043 IMGP0037 IMGP0040 IMGP0041 IMGP0042

P2 Art in the Botanical Gardens

IMGP0023 IMGP0040 IMGP0024 IMGP0031IMGP0020

Primary 2 visited the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. We examined lots of the plants and flowers in the hothouses and then created flower felted pictures using sheep’s wool. It was hard work- you have to cover the design in bubble wrap and rub and knead the wet wool!

The finished felted pictures are on display in our classroom. Come in and see them!
