May 12th 2017
We have been working really hard to prepare for our SATs tests. We have found time to finish an article about the bombing of Rotherwas in 1942 (You might read Grace’s entry which has been put forward for The Fownhope Flag). In art we have investigated using perspective, looking at the work of Hunderwasser and Escher, drawing street scenes and our hands, giving them a 3D perspective. With our forthcoming Pembrokeshire trip, we will be investigating rivers and looking at the area of Pembrokeshire.
We hope that everyone had a fantastic summer. We love this term as there is so much going on – new classes, topics and an exciting start to the term with year 6 sketching some amazing portraits and our ‘Roald Dahl’ celebrations. We have chosen ‘The BFG’ (rather appropriate as we are the tallest teachers.)
Our topic this term is investigating ‘The Maya’ and the region of Mesoamerica. We will read creation myths, taste some exotic food and write about travelling through the deepest and darkest rainforests to discover lost tribes.
We’ll also be trying our hand at salsa dancing – any volunteers to show us the steps would be greatly appreciated!
