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!

Year 6 – WW2 leaders research

After our discussion in the morning about who the various nations leaders were during World War 2, there are some links below which you may want to use to:

1. Look at the websites below and decide which leader you would like to make a factfile about.

2. Using the sheet provided, create factfile. Remember we are not copying! Write the information down in your own words. We are particularly interested in what they did, and what impact they had on the course of the war.
