We’re artists!

This week has flown by in a flash! We began the week with some play rehearsals, found out more about Sikhism during our faith experience and attended an event at Sparken Hill to learn more about different careers. We squeezed in a bit of narrative writing when we began our stories set on a mountain before ending the week with a whole day art workshop with visiting artist and author duo,  Duncan and Emma Pass. We created our own storyline and then made the printing plates ourselves! We can’t wait to see the finished comic in the exhibition at Worksop Library in July!

Year 6 had a breathtaking trip (in more ways than one!) on Thursday. We visited Derbyshire to take a walk past Ladybower Reservoir and then hiked up Win Hill. At 462m, it’s not quite a mountain but we certainly felt a mountainous sense of achievement when we reached the top!


Use your powers of persuasion

If you wanted to look at the towns and villages link on there, you can also find more information about your group’s town.

You might want to create your topic group mountain or another famous mountain from around the world. Maybe you’ll add some supporting research about the mountain you’ve created. Try to keep it manageable and allow yourself enough time for it to dry and be decorated. Remember – big isn’t necessarily better and don’t forget you’ll be taking it home at the end of term!
