'All aboard' the Summer term!

Welcome back to school and our brand new theme - the rise of the British seaside holiday.

We will be learning all about the rapid changes that took place during Victorian times and how the Industrial Revolution helped to transform our country and wider world with the invention of the steam engine.

During our first few weeks, we will concentrate on revising for our SATs, which take place the week after the King's coronation. Please see the dates below and some informaiton in the curriculum letter which is attached above.

Happy New Year

"The Winds of Change"

"Who were our ancestors and what can we learn from them?"

 

Welcome back to the Spring term. The class are very excitied about our new theme and have already undertaken some super research about the Shang Dynasty. Have a look at some of their presentations below.

The children worked in teams and researched information for a particular aspect of life during the

Shang Dynasty (1600BC to 1000BC)

Bamboo Art: Continuing our traditional Chinese themed artwork, Year 6 have recent produced some stunning monochrome bamboo illustrations using tones of either blue or black ink, creating a sense of depth and light source. These were also accompanied by Chinese calligraphy to convey traditional proverbs.

Music: Recently Year 6 have explored BandLab digital music technology to compose authentic Chinese relaxation anthems to accompany their Tai-Chi sequences - listen to a selection below:

Our letters of love and devotion based on the Willow Pattern story.

Winds of Change artwork: Linked to our Literacy study of 'The Willow Pattern Story', our children have been perfecting their sketching and watercolour skills to recreate authentic blue and white Chinese plate patterns to recreate key aspects of of the storyline. See the finished results below!

Art: View this wonderful selection from the talented Year 6's take on an authentic Chinese 'Willow Pattern' plate, using primarily tones of blue with watercolours.

Happy Lunar New Year

 

The children have been celebrating Chinese New Year as part of our Winds of Change theme. We created lanterns and prepared, cooked and ate some tasty noodles.
