P7A have been studying how to create perspective in their art and have used this to create some wonderful poppy field paintings. The effect is fantastic and has led us to find out a lot about poppies and their symbolism after the First World War.
P7 had an amazing trip to the Lady Haig Poppy Factory in Edinburgh where they learned about the history of the poppy, its significance and how they are made.
They found out about life in the Second World War for people at home and on the Front. They saw loads of artifacts from the 1940s and some lucky people (and Mrs Rae) got to dress up in the kind of equipment worn by soldiers at that time.
They got a chance to make their own poppies and had a fantastic and informative trip.
Here’s a game that Emelia and Anna coded using the games on code.org’s Hour of Code website:
P7A and P7B have been starting to find out about coding. We’ve looked at why coding is important, where coding is used (EVERYWHERE!) and we have started making our own mini games using a coding language called Scratch. Here’s a game that Jay and Harley wrote using Hour of Code’s Flappy Bird tutorial.
