While some pupils were on the Edinburgh trip the remainder of P7H and P7McC designed their own boardgames. When completed they played the games and voted for their favourite. Knuckle Ball was the overall winner. Well done to Carter, Jack and Michael from P7H.
Spaghetti and Marshmallow Bridges
In our WAU topic of bridges we investigated building strong bridge structures out of only spaghetti and marshmallows. We learned that the strongest shape to ubild our bridges out of was a triangular shape. To be successful our bridges had to withstand the weight of a pair of scissors. here are the results!
Autumn Leaf Patterns
We collected a variety of leaves from around the school grounds to create leaf patterns with autumnal colours. These pieces are all showcasing our knowledge of negative space. We learned that negative space is the space around the subject of the artwork. We focused on painting the space around our leaf patterns.

Recently in art we have been looking at the work of Pablo Picasso and the style of cubism which he invented. Below you can see some of our recreations of his most famous portraits in the style of cubism. We also discovered that a Picasso painting sold for over $103 million in 2020!! 😮
