Kippen Primary pupils and staff enjoyed a lovely afternoon with visitors who joined us for our annual Daffodil Tea and Open Afternoon. It’s a lovely opportunity for family and friends of the school to pop in and allows the children to share their learning. Thanks again to all who contributed to a very successful afternoon.
Primary 1 have been learning about Transport. We made paper aeroplanes with their visitors, designed new types of transport and showed off all their hard work. We had written and drawn about our visits from PC Jackson from The British Transport Police, Mrs Shanks and Mr Buchanan. We had writing about our class, Transport Pop Art Prints and Transport Models on display. We shared our literacy jotters and our topic jotters too. You couldn’t miss our big red bus which we made in art. We hope you didn’t bang your head when you came in!
Primary 2/3 welcomed visitors to their very own big top where they shared their hard work on their circus topic. Visitors were given a chance to learn about the history of the circus and might even have been taught to spin plates or juggle. They were also asked to give their opinion on whether animals should perform in the circus. A controversial topic that has prompted some serious discussion in Primary 2/3 while they learned about presenting a balanced argument.
Primary 3/4 have been learning about Famous Scots. At the open afternoon, visitors had an opportunity to browse their work and engage in some art activities. The children painted some portraits and visitors were able to paint their own watercolour in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There was also a Scottish portraits quiz to get everyone thinking!
Primary 5/6 welcomed visitors to their Rainforest themed room to browse through their work and learn about the rainforest. The children showed off their watercolours and persuasive writing as well as challenging visitors in rainforest quiz.
Primary 7 have been learning about World War 2 and invited guests to take part in their very own VE Day celebration. Visitors learned about different aspects of World War 2 through reading the children’s personal projects. There was also WW2 baking available to taste while listening to some music of the era.
