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…

This week in Year 6…

We have been very busy finding all sorts of missing angles in Numeracy and in Literacy we have been discussing and researching the expansion of the railways during the Victorian era. We have watched an animated version of The Wind in the Willows and created pop up Christmas cards in a style similar to the first ones sent by the Victorians. Our focus in art has been on paintings by the artist LS Lowry: we analysed his use of colours and perspective to portray industrialised landscapes before we recreated our own collaged version of ‘Northern River Scene’. Why don’t you share what your favourite part of the week has been?
