Groovy Gymnastic with P5L!

Groovy Gymnastics with P5L! on PhotoPeach
P5L had a fantastic morning in the gym hall today with our P.E Specialist teacher, Mrs Clapperton. They were exploring and using their ‘thinking body’ to develop and create their own gymnastics sequences using balance, control and movement. Everyone worked hard both independently and co-operatively to extend their technical gymnastics skills and abilities ready for more complicated apparatus next week.

Recycled Bird Feeders with P5L

As part of their Bronze John Muir Award P5L worked with Emily Sanderson, the National of Scotland Ranger at Newhailes, to make lard balls and recycled bird feeders for our school wild garden areas. The children are going to monitor the garden bird population in our school grounds to try and identify the different species of birds that choose to visit and feed every week. Emily and a NTS volunteer Fiona also told the class all about different types of garden birds that live in the U.K and let them listen to their birdsong as one way of identifying each species. Everyone got involved in making delicious wild bird seed lard balls which are a really good source of food and energy for garden birds over the colder autumn and winter months. We are now all very excite to get outside and watch and wait for our feathered friends to visit and feed!

P5L have been inspired by the Japanese artist, Hokusai, to paint their own tsunami waves as part of their interdisciplinary topic, Man-Made and Natural Disasters. They used oil pastels and mixed watercolours to explore hot and cold colours as they drew and painted their own wave pictures.
