- About Us
Last week, Year 6 looked at the work of Austrian born artist, Hans Liska. During our first lesson we looked closely at his techniques of shading, cross hatching, contour hatching and stippling. We then used these techniques to draw people and objects in great accuracy and detail.
Finally, we used these techniques to create drawings of what we might have seen in war-torn Europe during WW2.
Year 6 have been taking part in some Christmas activities! They arrived to school in Christmassy jumpers, and took part in a special Christmas Co-Jo's mission based around the twelve days of Christmas.
Here are some photos of the children following the 'Pied Piper' around a course, copying exactly what they did - it was very difficult and they repeatedly got sent back! They had to show lots of resilience and determination to succeed.
We hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas, and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
This week, Year 6 have been writing reports about our solar system, focusing on either the inner or outer planets. They have been doing lots of research and reading around this topic to be able to include lots of interesting information, and we think that this effort really shows in their fantastic writing. Here are some examples!
Year 6 have become artists this past week! The children started their art week off by studying the work of an artist named Peter Thorpe, who became famous for his abstract paintings inspired by space exploration.
The children have learned about technical terms such as 'background', 'foreground', 'abstract', 'tints' and 'shades', and have put their learning into practice by using Peter Thorpe's techniques to create paintings inspired by space.
