Today in Art, we were looking at the artwork of Roy Lichtenstein, a pop artist from America. Lichtenstein used minimal colours when creating his work and often used a form of art known as 'pointillism' to colour. Today we created artwork of our own faces in the style of Lichtenstein.
Today in Art, the children had the opportunity to appreciate the artwork of Andy Warhol. Using his work as a stimulus, the children created their own Campbell’s Soup Warhol artwork.
In Numeracy, we have been learning about finding the area and perimeter of rectangular shapes. In art, we looked at the work of Piet Mondrian, an artist who worked with minimal colours and shapes to create his work. In art, we created our own Mondrian artwork using black card and felt tips. The purpose of this style of abstract artwork is to begin with the same materials but to each create something different and unique. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our work.
This year we launched our Viking topic with a ‘Viking Day.’ Children were given the opportunity to dress like Vikings, design their own Viking shield and learn all about the Vikings. Throughout the day the children looked at Viking artefacts with Mrs Logan, created Viking claywork with Mr Moreland and made Viking rune artwork with Mr Fleming. Here are some of the photos of the things we enjoyed during the day.
On 28th February, Primary Six visited the Viking Exhibition in the North Down Museum. Throughout the day, the children had the opportunity to hear Viking sagas, listen to live Viking music and visit a Viking longhouse. As part of the children's visit to the longhouse, the children were taught by a real life Viking about life during the Viking age and what it meant to live as a Viking. Here are some of the photos taken during the day to give you a flavour of our school trip.
The Human Body Post-it Challenge
In P6 Room 19, we have been learning about the human body and in this lesson we were learning the names of the different bones that make up the skeleton. We were challenged to write the names of the different bones on post-it notes and label our partner’s bones. How did we do?
P6 Room 21 Square Number Skyscrapers
Today in P6 Room 21, we have been learning about square numbers. To reinforce our learning, we created square number skyscrapers using square numbers as building blocks for our skyscrapers. The children were challenged to come up with the largest square number they could make and congratulations to Ria and Gemma who discovered that 400 is a square number.
