This week, we have been creating art using maths. These parabolic curves were created using an X and Y axis and then joining specific points together to build a curve. Although it is curved, we only used straight lines to create them!
This week, we have been participating in lots of poetry lessons for Poetry Week. We read ‘Invasion of the Supervillains’ by Neal Zetter and performed some of the poems from the book. We also had a workshop from Neal and learnt lots about poetry!
This week, we have been writing playscripts based on The Hobbit. We discussed the book and thought about how we could turn it into a script. We looked at different features including stage directions and character descriptions before we started writing our own.
This week, we have been learning all about angles and shapes. We have been working on our protractor skills to ensure we can measure and draw angles accurately. We have also been calculating missing angles and internal angles of different shapes.
This week, we have started learning all about the history of London (or Londinium, as it was once called!). We created our own timelines of London and we will begin to form a plan for our own historical projects.
Well done to all the children in Class 6 who created accurate and detailed timelines!
This week, we have started our new art topic all about Frida Kahlo. To begin, we looked at some of her artwork and discussed her inspiration. We designed and made our own ‘ojo de dios’ which means ‘God’s eye’. They are thought to watch over people as they pray.
