This term’s project was very exciting. We studied a different artist each week, wrote a fact sheet about their lives then produced a piece of artwork using their techniques. Here are some examples. The artists were Salvador Dali, Rembrandt, Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, Claude Monet, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
The Return of Kodaly
We were delighted to welcome John, our Kodaly tutor.
From October 2017 Strathgarve pupils have been live on Seesaw. This allows parents and pupils to share daily learning. We now have 100% connectivity from parents. The children love choosing photos and videos knowing that their parents leave ‘likes’ and positive comments on their progress. It has been a huge success.
Our website will only have a brief outline of some larger events as we are posting daily learning on Seesaw now.
