P3/4 can all wear trip uniform tomorrow as we will be decorating the hard boiled eggs.
We explored a painting today and gave our thoughts and ideas about it. This is something we have been working on with our own pictures. This painting is from the east end of Glasgow and was painted by Joan Eardley
We also looked at a west end painting by Avril Paton. We heard a story about it and could imagine everything happening based on the painting. Some children then came to point out the different people and things in the 'Windows in the West' painting.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh was an artist, designer and architect. We saw some of his wonderful creations and heard so much about him. One of the things he designed were tea rooms. He was inspired by nature and we went on a nature hunt around the gallery. We drew some of the things we saw.
We looked at some of the work done by his contemporaries too when we were on our nature hunt!
We are having a super time here at Kelvingrove. We are learning all about how Glasgow has changed since the Victorian age.
We heard how St Mungo is the patron saint of Glasgow and we looked at an amazing painting which shows the view from the Necropolis.
I was absolutely delighted with how well everyone did with their talks. Thank you for putting in so much effort at home.
Molly even brought in a tin with a stag on it that was full of yummy shortbread for us to share.
We are going to Kelvingrove on Thursday to take part in a Glasgow art session. Everyone should bring a packed lunch and £5 max for the shop. Trip uniform should be worn.
We heard the last of the castle stories today which were super.
We also had some excellent news writing about the Easter weekend. There were Easter egg hunts, visiting friends and family, going to the farm and feeding new born lambs, teeth falling out, playing games and so much more. What an exciting time everyone has had.
What a joyful service we had in the Church today. Thank you to everyone who managed to come along. Wishing you all a very happy Easter.
