This week, the element of art we are studying is Space.
Here are some different techniques that artists use to create space in their work. Maybe you could try one of these drawing tasks?
Or, you could choose something you want to draw and try out one of these techniques in your drawing.
Another option would be to experiment with these creating space techniques using photography; you could try taking a picture of something at different angles, you could zoom in or position objects in a different way.
There are so many possibilities for you to explore…
One of your art tasks this week is to try ‘Shadow tracing’ to learn about positive and negative space. Here’s an example of my shadow tracing artwork. I decided to use black and a bright colour for mine. Maybe you want to try out some complimentary colours for your positive and negative space?
Find a sunny spot for you to use, position your paper so you can trace the object’s shadow.
Trace the outline of the shadow. Carefully hold your paper in place while you do this!
I coloured my negative space in black.
I added a different colour to the positive space.
Organic Shapes, Most Of The Time They Look Pretty Natural So For with Examples Of Organic Shapes In Art – Examples and Forms
This week, we are looking at the element of Shape as part of our Art topic.
Geometric shapes are usually simple and have a special name, such as square or circle. they don’t often appear in nature.
An organic shape is irregular and often curvy. They appear often in nature.
Here are some organic shapes we saw either in the garden or as part of our daily walk/exercise. Can you notice the different shapes we found?
Remember, to keep an eye out when you are outside to look for organic shapes.
For some reason, the link in our grid for maths is requesting you to register so you can play-if you are having this problem here are other alternatives to help with time.
This game can be set at different levels to practise telling the time:
This looks at telling the time in words ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’ etc.
Topmarks has a selection of activities:
Please use time worksheets available on twinkl (First Level)
Here is an updated grid for week 4 with these changes if it is helpful.

Good morning Primary 3,
We hope that you and your families had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy some sunshine during your daily exercise.
We have got lots of exciting activities planned this week and we hope that you enjoy them.
Last week we asked you to send pictures, stories and letters to Aaron House Care Home and we are thrilled to know that they were greatly received and cherished by all the residents and staff at the home. We spoke to Sharron from the care home who wanted us to pass on a thank you from everyone at Aaron House. You can read her email below:
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank each one of your lovely primary 3 pupils at Sciennes Primary School for all their wonderful e-mails.
The Carers & Activities/Memory Makers Team have sat with the Residents and showed each of them, all the wonderful pictures & read out all the stories which even we the staff and carers have enjoyed.
We are very fortunate that we have had no little bugs at Aaron House and everyone is safe and well. The Residents however are missing seeing their loved ones, but your letters and pictures have really cheered them up.
Thank you once again from all the Residents & Staff at Aaron House.

Give yourselves a round of applause P3!! Well done and thank you for sending all your emails on, your kindness has made a big difference and we ask you to write about how this email has made you feel in this week’s learning grid. Please do not worry if you did not manage to send them an email last week, you can still do this if you would like or perhaps you might want to send an email on to a friend or loved one to brighten up their day.
We also hope that you have managed to watch the Toilet Roll Challenge, if you haven’t already, go and give it a watch. We are missing you all very much and wanted to say a big hello to all the children at Sciennes.
Have a good week everyone.
From all the P3 Teachers.
I have received an email to say that the links did not work when trying to access them. Apologies for this. When we try and open them on our laptops they work.
If you are having trouble with them please search for BBC Audio Maths Rainbow Quiz and it should be the first result that appears. This is the link that we put on the grid for it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/audio-maths-rainbow-quiz/zhdvpg8
Then for this one https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000h2st/bitesize-scotland-primary-1-maths-1 please search Bitesize Scotland primary 1 maths 1 Snoot and Fin (the primary 1 is just the episode not the year group).
Again, apologies for any trouble you may have accessing the links and hope that this helps.
The P3 Team.
