Armistice Day 11/11/20

On Remembrance Day at 11 o’clock the school came together to observe a 2 minute silence.

The P6/7 class narrated Poppy Scotland’s “The Poppy Story” which all the classes listened to.

The class also created a hanging to commemorate all those whose names appear on the War Memorial. This proudly hung in the Church On Remembrance Sunday and is now on display in the school.

Watercolour Adventures

In Art P6/7, have been looking at the skill of water colour painting.

We have looked at a number of skills; how to shape the brush to apply paint, how water affects the paint, how can water be used to remove paint and how the paint can look darker by adding the same colour on top.

We were able to go outside into the playground to use the beautiful Autumn colours to practise the skills we have learnt in the classroom.

We will continue to work on our painting skills and use the changing environment as stimulus for our art.

Orchard Fun

It was great to visit the Orchard to pick what has turned out to be a bumper harvest.

Calculating the harvest and using Google sheets allowed the class to produce graphs to show the increase in harvest year on year.

It is also true that some of the produce was eaten for the purposes of quality control.

The chance to get outdoors within the class bubble has been one of the  highlights of this term. The children have done extremely well in the return to a very changed School environment.

We will continue to celebrate the Orchard through our learning.
