Year 6 get creative!!

We’ve had a very creative time this week in Year 6: we have been developing our sketching skills by trying to represent the Parthenon; using wax crayons to do some scratch art based on Ancient Greek images; sketching mythical beasts and using Thinking Skills to create our own versions. Finally, we finished the week by designing and making our own Ancient Greek style vases. Have a look at a few of the photos of us using the clay then let us know what your highlights of the week have been…

Wriggly worms

Year 6 had a brilliant Friday afternoon constructing two worm huts to link in with our  Science and RE work. Hopefully, it won’t be very long before we’re harvesting our own worm compost and worm tea! There was lots of team work happening too as we got on with some problem solving to figure out the instructions for building the huts. Check out the pictures to see how we got on…
