- About Us
Year 6 have had a great afternoon showcasing their competitive nature in a badminton festival designed by the sports leaders! Each child engaged in numerous doubles games with their partner, which not only displayed their high levels of skill, but showcased the children's ability to work together as a team and also their resilience throughout. Well done to all children for their enthusiasm and participation today! Congratulations to Rhys and Sonny who were our champions!!!
We have had lots of fun exploring pointillism as a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. This was developed in 1886 by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac and branched from Impressionism. We also looked at how this technique was similar to aboriginal dot paintings.
We begun by exploring paint and having a try at this technique on some pre-drawn pictures before attempting our own masterpieces!
To inspire our writing, Year 6 had a visit by a police officer! Thoroughly, he spoke us through the process of writing a police report, focussing on what to include! We then had a go at writing our own based on some photographs he brought in. In writing, we then applied our new found knowledge to writing our own police reports focussing on The Titanic! We made sure to fill our reports with only factual detail and when we wrote the description of the criminal, we made sure we described them from the top to the toe!
As we move past the half way mark of this half term, the excitement is rising ahead of our KS2 dance festival on Thursday 6th April. In Year 6, each class teacher has given total control of their dance to the children and I'm sure the results will be splendid; a completely child-led performance! It is so wonderful to see that as they finish their final dance unit at Crook Primary School, the year 6 children are utilising all of the skills they have acquired over the years, incorporating elements of drama into their Harry Potter style performance too!
