Celebration of Work
Year 6 have been linking their learning during Black History Month with their art lessons. They have created abstract portraits in acrylic paint inspired by Jamaican artist, Bulsby Duncan.
This week Year 6 have been continuing their research on The Stone Age. They are writing a non-chronological report, detailing life from the Palaeolithic (early Stone Age) right through to the Iron Age.
In Art the children have been using modroc to create replica Stone Age skulls and bones - lots of mess but great fun! We have also been enjoying our Science lessons, where we have been recognising symbols in order to build our own electrical circuits.
Year 6 have returned to school refreshed and enthusiastic. Our topic this term is The Stone Age and we have begun reading Wolf Brother to compliment our learning. We are writing a setting description, using fantastic vocabulary to describe the forest where Torak and his father live.
In maths we are refining our place value skills; in PE we are enjoying our multi-skills lessons with Chelsea Football Club. This week we have been learning rugby skills.
