Today, we conveyed the horror of the Blitz on Coventry, using collage techniques and different materials. We thought about the emotions the artwork made us feel.
Last month, Year 6 had a peace evening in school. As part of the evening we created peace doves, bunting and stones to share messages of peace in different languages. Today we hung the doves and bunting up around the school grounds and left the peace stones in the woods for children to find.
See if you can spot our peace messages around school.
This morning we have used our ideas from our reading of ‘Rescue 1940’ to inspire our own poetic compositions. Which poetic techniques can you spot in our poems? Have we succeeded in creating an emotive poem?
This week we have been learning about how World War Two came to an end in Europe. How did the people celebrate? What problems might some of the people still face?
This morning we have been reading the poem ‘Rescue 1940’ by John Birchall to identify poetic techniques. Who is the character in the poem? What is the story of the poem? Can you think of any of your own examples of poetic techniques that you could use to write your own Blitz poem?
This morning we have been identifying the properties of different quadrilaterals. Are there any shapes that can fall into more than one category? How can you prove this?
