Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas to you all! If you get a spare minute, let us know what you’re getting up to over the holidays. Are you having friends and family over to visit? Maybe you’re planning a family day out somewhere. Perhaps you’ll be keeping warm at home and getting busy with your Art Project. Whatever you do, send us a quick post and let us know. Have a great time and don’t eat too many chocolates!!!

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?
