To continue our work on the Greeks, we have been creating our own Greek vases using pastels. We created our own designs and looked at the skills and techniques needed to create our pieces of work.

Pen Licence

Well done to these children today who received their pen licence. I set the challenge to Sycamore Class to see how many of the class can achieve a pen licence before they leave and these have proven to me that they deserve it!

Well done guys! Can we finish the year with even more?

DARE

This week in our DARE lesson we looked at how non-verbal communication is just as important as verbal contact. We did some role play dramas and to show our facial expressions and gestures for didn’t scenarios or emotions.

 

We did role plays for: angry, sad, surprised, sarcastic, and not caring.

These are some of the faces for each one.

Monopoly

May 12th, 2017 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Today, year 6 were set a project to create their own monopoly boards based on important buildings and features from across Nottinghamshire. The children were engaged throughout and loved researching some of their favourite places to visit in our county.

We had a range of different counters and punishments for landing on properties and we then had the chance to play a quick game, although there was definitely some dodgy bankers handing out some money…..

This was a fantastic project to end the week with and the whole year group worked together brilliantly to create their board games. Well done year 6!

In our DARE lessons this week, we have been looking at stressful situations and how best to deal with these in a mature and sensible manner. We were able to discuss what sort of things we do when we are stressed and how these help us deal with situations that are difficult.

What stratergies do you use for stressful situations?

Greek Art

May 3rd, 2017 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Our topic this term will be focused on the Ancient Greeks and to kickstart this, we have started to research some of the art that is famous from this time period. We looked at Greek vases and how the patterns changed over time, starting with these original desgisn. Over the half term we will be creating our own Greek vases with a twist…. with a pattern or image that best describes the world we live in today.
