Year 6 have created power-points in Art today to explore Composition, Scale and The Rule of Thirds.

Year 6 have created power-points in Art today to explore Composition, Scale and The Rule of Thirds, with a focus on the Artist William Turner. This term they will be creating masterpieces linked to the class ‘Transport Topic’ looking more closely at using these techniques.

I was very impressed with their learning today and wanted to share it, so that you can celebrate with your children as well.

Watch this space for our budding artist display soon.

Learning represented through Imaginative Artwork

Today, different classes worked together to think about how they can represent the concept of LEARNING through Art. The children were not allowed to use pencils or pens and had to be collaborative learners bringing together shared ideas to create these stunning creative pieces.

Each group was able to talk through how their creations were linked to learning. We were very impressed with all of the wonderful ideas that were shared.

Mrs Tricket is very excited to put each piece up for display to welcome us back into school in September.

Please take a momen to talk to your child about the ideas behind their pieces, I’m sure they will WOW you as they did us!

Y5: Have been thinking about what it was like to be an evacuee in the war.

Today Year 5 and some year 3 and 4 children have been learning about what happened to children who were evacuated during the war. They were surprised to learn that if they had lived in a busy city during the war, they would have been sent away to live with either relatives or a host family in the countryside where it was safer, leaving their grown up’s behind!

Next week they will be writing as an evacuee from their plans, see examples below, a letter home to their families telling them all about their experiences from leaving their grown ups at the train station to travelling to the countryside and meeting their new host families and joining a new school. Please ask your children to share what they have learnt so far!
