Paul Nash Artwork

September

This half term in Art lessons we have been studying Paul Nash and trying to look closely at his work. We discussed artwork such as The Battle of Britain, Totes Meer, Battle of Germany and Defense of Albion. The sombre tones and colours, as well as the marred landscapes, were great points for debate. We chose our favourite one and tried to replicate a small area of it in his style before creating our own Nash-ish watercolour.

Year 6 have been revising negative numbers and played a bingo style game in pairs using dice. We had great fun and had lots of practise with subtracting across zero.

Tag Rugby

To start our Tag Rugby lessons, we played a number of games to learn the rules and techniques of the sport. There were some outstanding “challenge yourself” behaviours being shown and wonderful teamwork across the year group. Well done to everyone!

World War II

September

This half term, Year 6 are learning about World War II. In one of our first topic lessons, we looked at the countries that were involved and whether they were allies, neutral or an axis power. We used our knowledge from previous lessons, our own research, and the atlases to help us colour code our own maps of Europe.
