P2a November Learning Log.

I know that magic e scares the vowel to say it’s real name, the vowels are A,E,I,O,U. –Nina

We were learning about time in maths. We learnt about quarter past and quarter to. –Ayla

We learnt about poppy day this week and we made dazzle poppies. –Florence.

I learnt that magic e puts all it’s power into the vowels so that they can say their name and that makes the e silent. -Dan 

 

 

P1a & P1b Dazzle Topic Afternoon

Helena from the Dazzle Ship in Leith came to visit us. She answered lots of our questions about how the ships were painted and what they were used for.

Then we used masking tape to create different shapes on our own cardboard and painted them same way the lady Painted the ship in Leith.

We went on a Dazzle Ship letter hunt but we could only see the letters if we used a torch.

We made sea worlds with playdoh.

P1a Dazzle Topic

We have been learning about Dazzle ships. We worked in groups to make some origami boats.

First we decorated both sides of the paper with different shapes and patterns. Then folded the paper to make a boat.

Next we wanted to see if the boats would sink or float. We even managed to predict some of the outcomes.

Each group named their boat. The names were Rock Star Banger, Titanic, Dazzle of Hearts, Colour and Dazzle Ship.

When we tested them in the water, they all floated and this made us very happy!

P2b Dazzle Ship Trip

14.11.16

Today we went on a class trip to see The Dazzle Ship. We have been learning lots about our local area past and present and have been looking at The Dazzle Ship as a whole school. We were lucky enough to talk about Dazzle Ships both in the past and look at the one today at Leith Docks.

P4a Learning Log Dazzle Art

DAZZLE ART

This week we enjoyed visits from Poppy, who is an artist, and Helena from the Edinburgh Arts Festival. They helped us to make fabulous masks for a ‘Dazzle Ball’. We used our skills in Optical Illusions to draw patterns and designs, then cut these up and added other materials to build our masks. They look amazing. We were also filmed for Forces TV. It was very exciting.

Portraits

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.
