Autumn 1 – Our Learning
6C have had a fantastic first couple of weeks back.
I have been amazed with everyone’s positive attitude to learning, resilience and enthusiasm for being back at school.
This term our topic is Ancient Greece.
The children have thrown themselves into their learning and have enjoyed a hook day
where they learned about the Greek number system, Homer (a famous author of this era),
as well as some food tasting and constructing an Ancient Greek musical instrument – a lyre.
In art we have been researching the famous artist Barbara Hepworth.
She was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire and is famous for her modern and unique sculptures.
This week, we have been researching her life and attempting to draw her sculptures using observational techniques and shading to add detail.
Look at the examples below to see what we have been up to.
Over the last two weeks of term Year 6 enthusiastically worked with different materials
and equipment to attempt to model sculptures inspired by Barbara Hepworth.
We used salt dough, playdough, soap and clay.
These are some examples of the work we produced.
