Artists' Exhibition

Artists' Exhibition The Second Annual Valley School Art Show was a great success! Each student at The Valley School exhibited a favorite work of art. It was a sight to see all the artwork thoughtfully presented together! There were drawings, prints, paintings and sculptures. Artworks inspired by Matisse, Dubuffet, Op Art, atmospheric perspective and artist’s books, color mixing, Eric Carle, portraiture, contrasting line and color, and more were all represented. There were even some sculptures inspired by the building project at Valley. It was an awesome display of the creativity and talent at The Valley School!
Medieval Revelry

Medieval Revelry Third Grade went back in time to 1276 visiting the village of Camlann in Carnation. They saw typical village buildings and learned about the daily life of a medieval villager. They saw the Forge and learned how a blacksmith heated and shaped iron to make pots, pans, and arrow heads. They ate a ploughmans lunch on a 'trencher' (a piece of bread used as a plate) while Roger, the tour guide, played the lute to them. They also got to meet Murial the sheep, who provides the wool for the village spinner and weavers.
Dissection Investigation

Dissection Investigation Students dissected pig hearts in 2nd grade this week! Children used their senses to explore the hearts while they learned what it does for a body. Currently 2nd graders at Valley School are studying the human body. Three amazing parent volunteers brought in the pig hearts to dissect in small groups with the children in this exciting hands on experience.
