Edvard Munch

Year 6 Have been learning about Edvard Munch, his life and his works of art.

We have focused on his painting titled ‘The Scream of Nature’. We looked at his use of colour and lines. Then we have done our own interpretation of the bands of colour and wavy lines to form our own background.


Mindful Thinking

Year 6 have been thinking about our well-being and how special we are.

Biophilia and Propinquity


Envoys – Thursday 17th January 2019

 

We have been improving our learning skills by using envoys.

The envoys had to learn the information about the different time periods in the Stone Age (Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic). It was then our job to question the envoys, listen to their information and write notes to help support our independent work.

We had to gain a deeper understanding of how life improved for man from using caves for shelter to making portable huts to more established homes; from being hunter/gatherers to growing crops and keeping animals domestically and about the types of tools they made, what they were made from and why they were needed.


Circulatory System – Friday 16th November 2018

Faith – Friday 2nd November 2018

Have a look at our mind maps about this topic:
