Rangoli patterns for Diwali

We designed Rangoli patterns with rotational symmetry.

Orcadian Dialect

We have been trying to learn more about the Orcadian Dialect as we think people should use it more. Pupil Council have made it one of their targets too. We have created an Orkney words display (P1 - 3 liked our work so much they wanted to do some too). Can you guess what the words mean? Lift the flaps (if you're in school; it's a bit tricky on the web) to find out....

We have also had Councillor Harvey Johnson helping us - he presents the Radio Orkney word game Wassigo and went through some Orkney poems with us.

Music Compositions

We have been creating sound effects and working together to make compositions for Halloween and Bonfire Night.

Stick chain reactions

We have been learning about how energy is stored. We learned how to make a chain stick reaction - they were really impressive!

We have been doing art in the style of Keith Haring. We used small black lines to show movement.

African clay masks

We have been making masks - aren't they great?

Heart experiments
