Art, history and computing in 5HS

5HS began our art work for the term, which is based on The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. We started by focussing on mixing colours accurately and moved onto looking at the way he uses line and texture, adding flour to thicken our paint and copying a small section of the painting. In the afternoon we worked collaboratively looking at pictures of Anglo-Saxon artefacts and explored what they tell us about life at that time. We ended our day thinking about online identities and the way they can be copied, changed or altered and the impact this can have on us.

Lino tile art in 6W

In art this week we experimented with different types of symmetry before choosing the patterns for our lino tile designs. We had to decide upon the bottom and top layer, choosing different types of symmetry. We then experimented with using the tools to carve out tiles using lino. Next week we will carve our tiles and put into practise all we have learnt.

Maths in 6W

Yesterday we worked on our reasoning and problem solving skills in relation to factors and multiples. We were challenged with complex problems which required us to use a trail and error approach at times. We had mathematical sentence starters to help us frame our conversations with our partners. We are certainly academically fit for life!

Art in 6W

Today we used our William Morris inspired pieces from last lesson to design our lino tile. We ensured we had pieces inspired by nature, just like William Morris and then experimented with layering to help choose our colours for our final piece! We think our work looks amazing and we’re excited to see the final pieces!

Monster Phonics

Year Two have loved learning this week. It has been fabulous to see the monsters on the screen again. They still know all of the words and really enjoyed a word hunt in the woodland area to spell some of cool blues words.

The first day of 6W

Today was the first day of 6W! We wrote cards to our future selves to open on the last day of the school year, with our hopes and dreams for the year and questions to ask ourselves at the end of the year. We’re going to work extremely hard to ensure we achieve all we set out to this year!

Police Officer visit

Year Two were thrilled to have a visit from the police today. They were excited to sit in the police van, wear some police gear and learn about how the officers keep us safe. They had some great questions and understand that there are many types of officers working hard to ensure that people follow the law. Thank you Mr Williamson!
