P5B have been very busy in art. Mrs Watson (Sam’s mum) came with her daughter, Rosie, to show us how to draw and paint spooky haunted Hallowe’en trees. We used pencil to draw the gnarled branches and roots so they looked like hands and feet, then we used a black biro pen to create a cross hatch which gives the effect of a shadow. Finally, we used watercolour to add gradual colour to the tree, the sky and the background. Here are some of our paintings. What do you think of them? Add comments please!
What do YOU think of how they turned out, Mrs Watson??
Well Halloween has arrived once more and primary 5 have been making up recipes for spells including lots of slimey ingredients. Here they are. Have a read and tell us what you think of them!
All primary 5 classes are visiting the birthplace of John Muir in Dunbar as part of their Environmental Studies topic and their work towards achieving the John Muir Award.

Have you got what it takes to take a great photo?
Well here is a chance to find out. Pupils are being asked to take a photo or bring one in from home to enter into the gallery in school. All photos will be displayed and then the best ones will be selected to enter a competition. So get out your cameras, take time to brush up yoeur knowledge and skills and get your creative juices flowing. Good Luck and we can`t wait to see them!
Remember the rule is your photo must have been taken by you!
Here are a couple of helpful sites to get you going.
