Catch-up Wednesday

Good afternoon,

Well, we've been doing lots of bits and pieces over the last week or so. We've read and are acting out scenes from Harry Hobnail and the Pungapeople...

...with view to re-writing that scene from one of the character's perspectives, much as we did with Flanders Fields.

However, rest assure we have been doing some reading.

Good stuff!

Catholic Schools' Day @ OLA

Good afternoon,

It's been a great day here at school. We opened with OLA's part in the diocese' prayer circle as part of 2016's Catholic Schools' Day, and, as part of this day, St Bernadette's School came over for a visit.

And a good time was had by all!

And a lovely afternoon it has been too. Indeed, the whole day has been grand!

Very many thanks to our wonderful parent helps - without you, we could not have gone.

Tuesday's Tuesday

Good evening,

Not much to report really. We math'd...


...and read.

We also completed a wee object lesson that proved that Creativity Requires Time.

Competitively Cooperative Monday

Good evening,

This morning kicked off with a bit of healthy competition...

...and continued with some jolly fine cooperation.

As well as a bit of sorting out for the next piece of R.E. learning.

An Example for Blogging About My Art Inquiry Ideas

Good morning,

This term the Batten Team are doing a weeee (or actually quite a large) Art inquiry, based on our passions.

I really love Star Wars.

There are all sorts of art ideas that I could use related to Star Wars.
  • I could draw characters
  • I could paint backgrounds
  • I could make a building sculpture/landing pad out of boxes and stuff
  • I could perform a Star Wars music piece on the guitar
I would like to create a choreographed lightsaber battle with a partner...or perform a heavy metal version of the Asteroid Chase, from Episode V.

The questions I have about this are...
  • how do you do it?
    • can I rotoscope online?
  • what can I use for the sabers?
  • what do the colours of the sabers mean?
  • what costume shall I wear
    • will I tell a story, or just battle?
  • where can I see examples
That will do for now,

Bye bye,

Mr Grant

Video-Response-To-Text Wednesday

Good afternoon,

It's been a fun old day here at school. What, with a bit of reading...

...and responding to text...with the help of Room 6...

...which we will use as a basis for writing on Friday.

And a good time was had by all!

May the fourth be with you!

Welcome Back Monday

Good evening,

Well...back to it then...

...which included viewing some rather freaky art...
