This term, our topic is WWII. We will be learning about the Blitz, Evacuees, Rationing and much more. In art, we will be looking at the artwork of Henry Moore and we will be making motorised vehicles in Design and Technology.
Year 5/6 News
Each half term, the children will be given a project to complete as homework. This half term, I would like the children to research an area of WWII that particularly interests them. The homework can be presented in numerous ways: some writing, art work, a diagram/model or as a presentation. The completed project will be presented in class on the last week of each half term.
Summer Term 2018-19
Outdoor School Day
For art week, the children in Year 6, researched the designer Orla Kiely. They then came up with their own designs inspired by her work. The children used craft foam to make their own stamps and built up their designs using all the different stamps they made and layers of colour.
Year 6 children made Christingles with the rest of the school. They explained the symbolism of each part as they put the Christingle together.
We planted trees as part of our Forest Schools work.
Taster Day at Westleigh High School - As part of transition and primary liaison, the children enjoyed a visit to Westleigh taking part in science, art and PE activities.
