For the Brighton Avenue Art Exhibition 2019, the Year 6B children took on the tricky challenge of self-portraits. We spent lots of time looking at ourselves in mirrors; studying our individual features including head shape, hairline and positions of noses and mouths. We then put all of this into practice and created some stunning works of art. See if you can guess which members of the Year 6 class are represented below:
Back to Victorian School...
On Thursday, the children in Year 6B discovered what it was like to go back 150 years and experience life in a Victorian school. We discovered what lessons the children would have taken part in, what games they could enjoy at break time as well as finding out about the many punishments that they might have faced.
Take a look at the photos below and see if you can work out what is going on...
As part of our theme of 'Frozen Kingdoms', we asked the children to create a piece of artwork that represented the view from a ship window as they sailed through the icy waters of the Antarctic or Arctic Regions. I'm sure you will agree that the children have excelled themselves in creating these pictures. What makes us even more pleased is the amount of effort the children have put in during their own time at home. Thank you for your hard work and you should be extremely proud of yourselves!
On a Friday morning, along with Mr Murtagh, our Year 6 children have been learning all the skills required to play the fast and furious game of hockey. We learned how to hold our sticks correctly and how to pass the puck with accuracy and the right amount of power. Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to put these skills to the test in some small games and mini-tournaments! Results to follow:
Over the past 2 weeks, the children have been researching the designs of the early 20th century with the aim of using them in their very own model Titanic rooms. We began by using the Internet to hunt for patterns and furniture before sketching them in our books. Following that, we designed prototype chairs and tables that would be used within our rooms. Next week, we will begin constructing our rooms to the highest standard that we possible can!
Over 100 years ago, the fateful Titanic met its fate at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Year 6 were given the events which led up to that tragic moment and were asked to order the accurately. I think you'll agree that they have done a brilliant job!
