Sorting colours, balancing, stacking and building.
Self directed writing, letter learning and practising writing our names and numbers.
Patterns repeat with a rule. We have been focussing on two step colour rules such as red, yellow, red, yellow. Can you spot any patterns at home? Maybe you could make one with Lego, sweeties or paint?
Primary 1 looked at the changes in Pablo Picasso’s self portraits as he got older. We shared our opinions, sometimes we felt happy, sometimes confused, and sometimes we found the pictures silly. We are all entitled to our own opinions. After seeing all of the pictures, we each added a star on to our favourite one. Isn’t it interesting how we all had different favourites? Some of us then chose to make a self portrait in the style of Picasso’s cubism period. We were practising our choice, cutting, sticking and painting skills during this task. Look out for our final art gallery. To quote Picasso, “Every child is an artist”.
Primary 1 had great fun mixing paint on their hands!
