Take One Picture

Over the term we have been creating artwork inspired by the painting  'The Finding of Moses' by
Orazio Gentileschi. We carefully studied the painting, taking into consideration the shape and form created by the artist. We discussed what stood out in the painting and the significance of these things. We then decided to focus on the hands of the women in the painting as this was of particular interest. Our sketching skills were developed as we learned to sketch using charcoal and we used our mathematical skills to create optical illusions of hands using Vasarely's artwork as insirpation. Our final piece of artwork was then created using wire sculpture; a difficult process which took lots of resillience!

Helping at Home

In Year 6, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due in the following Tuesday. The children have been issued with a Homework Diary to help them manage their time effectively in preparation for secondary school.  These need to be signed by a parent/carer each week and handed in every Wednesday to be signed by their class teacher. In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading. We encourage them to record this in the homework diary too.

Our Year 6 PE lesson is on a Wednesday afternoon so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on this day.
