World Book Day 2019! Year 6 read with the Year 1 children…
Wintry art work by Year 6
This term, Year 6 painted some beautiful, wintry scenes. We used masking tape for the tree trunks and a watercolour wash over the tape to create the scenery. We then painted in the details on the trees and the background. Finally, we dotted on acrylic paint to create the snow.
The art work was inspired by Claude Monet’s painting, ‘The Magpie’.
This half-term, Year 6 will be investigating the Vikings. We will be looking at our perceptions of the Vikings, researching whether they are correct and why they have gained such a bad reputation!
We will be using primary and secondary sources of information to formulate our conclusions.
6D have made a timeline to understand the chronology of the Vikings’ time here…it’s huge!
Tying in with our Viking topic, we will be studying Beowulf; a tale of honour and gore! It is the oldest epic poem in Old English, being around 3000 lines long and 1000 years old. This is the original copy held at the British Library in London (our version will be a little bit easier to read!).
Year 6 enjoyed making lanterns with More Music for our community ‘West End Lantern Festival’…
Year 6 had a fantastic time at Robinwood. Here are some photos of the activities…
