P5b Learning Log for Dazzle



We “dazzled” the portraits of the six famous Scottish woman that we researched. Can you see Nicola Sturgeon, Elsie Inglis and Mairi Chisolm? These woman are well known for their work in politics or medicine.


Historic dazzling

This is Flora McDonald she helped Bonnie Prince Charlie to escape by dressing him up as a woman. One thing that all these woman have in common is how brave and strong and intelligent they all are or were.


Science Fiction Writing

We have been watching science fiction aninmation clips and writing descriptive stories about the planets and creatures. We are also creating and writing about creatures that would live on our planets.



We have been making sure we read carefully so we can write descriptions of characters from our novels. Then our partner draws from our descriptions. This is some of the images and descriptions of the Iron Man. This is the novel that one group is reading.

P1b October 2016

We had a Dazzle afternoon! A lady called Helena came in to work with us because she knows a lot about the Dazzle ships. 

We used masking tape to create shapes on pieces of cardboard, and then we painted the spaces in between, just like they used to paint the Dazzle ships.

We made small sea worlds with play dough!

We put different things into a tray of water to see if they would float or sink!

We used UV torches to find the hidden letters in the corridor – they spelt out DAZZLE!
