During this half term Year 6 pupils will be studying the ‘Swinging Sixties’. A new plan has been created using ideas from the pupils’ recent homework task and we look forward to carrying out some of the exciting activities from tie dyeing to sixties dancing!
Police Liaison Officer, Mark Jones, will be visiting us again this term with another important message about the dangers of drugs for our Year 6 pupils. The children will also be focusing on the topic of ‘Growing Up’ in their Personal and Social Education lessons this term and therefore may wish to further discuss issues raised in school with you at home.
Our Year 6 children need their outdoor P.E. kit in school every day. PE lessons are planned for a Tuesday and Thursday, however due to the hectic nature of the term for Year 6 pupils, this may be unavoidably changed to a different day. The children will take part in Cross Country, Athletics and Cricket/Rounders sessions during this term.
Year 6 pupils will also be preparing for our Leavers’ Service after the half-term break. This is always an enjoyable time for the pupils and we encourage all of the children to have a part in the service.
We are already enjoying our new topic of the 1960s!
We have created artwork in the style of Andy Warhol's Pop Art.
We began by sketching images of famous people from the 1960s e.g. John F Kennedy, Michael Jackson, Martin Luther King, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe using pencil and fine line pens.
Next we took a photograph of our sketch and then transformed the images using an app on our ipads called 'Abstract You' - we hope you like them!
