Castles in the style of Paul Klee

Who was Paul Klee?

Paul Klee was a Swiss-born painter who used intense colours, line drawing and simple shapes.

He was born on December the 18th, 1879 and died on June the 29th, 1940.

Our Artwork

We have enjoyed our topic on ‘Houses and Homes’ this term and decided to look at Paul Klee’s famous painting ‘Castle and Sun.’ I wonder who lived in this castle? Take a look at our wonderful artwork below.

Happy Birthday Riverbank!

Wow! What a fantastic birthday party Riverbank Primary School had today! Primary 2A started the day by creating a commemorative book about the things they loved most about Riverbank Primary School. The children drew fantastic pictures of our decorated classroom so we can always remember the day that our classroom looked like a jungle!

After wishing Riverbank Primary a happy 10th birthday with singing and cake, we were treated to a visit from a talented magician.Our zoo party kicked off in the afternoon! After a party snack we played Pass the Banana, Musical Statues, Best Dancer and Safari Corners. We then headed outside to the ice cream van and to play in the sun.

Miss Arnott, the zoo keeper, spotted a lion whilst enjoying the sunshine…
Thank you to everybody who made our birthday party such a success!

Multiplication Monsters

Our Multiplication topic came to an end this week, finishing with a Multiplication Monster Art project! First, the children had to work out how many of each body part their monster would own. To do this, each child rolled their dice twice to produce simple multiplication sums. We worked out the number of teeth, horns, arms, legs, eyes and even the body type through multiplication calculations!

Today we began to construct our monsters using pencil first, and then oil pastels. Every Multiplication Monster looks different and unique! They look terrific on our classroom wall.

Wacky races

We had great fun in football yesterday! Rob, the football coach, hosted ‘Wacky Races!’

The boys and girls worked in relay teams to pile as much equipment as they could on their seated team member. The catch… they could only take one piece of equipment at a time.

Take a look at the final results…. Can you guess who’s underneath?

Forest Schools Update

Unfortunately Forest Schools are unable to work with us this term due to staffing issues.

Despite the cancellation, Primary 2A are looking forward to making the most of the weather and taking part in lots of other outdoor learning experiences during our last Summer term!
