Art Skills Day with Becky the Artist 👩‍🎨

“I always thought I was rubbish at art - but today                                                            
                                                                                          has changed my mind.”

“I have a sewing machine at home that I have never used before.
After today, I’d like to try some sewing at home. I really enjoyed it.”



“I was surprised at how good I was at sewing.
My favourite was cross stitch; although I need to get better at threading a needle.”

Art: Keith Haring

Art: Impressionism 🖼🎨

As part of anti-bullying week, we looked at the work of Keith Haring. Keith used art to help spread positive messages to drive change in society. 


“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination

and encourages people to go further.”

Keith Haring


"I liked Keith's use of bold colours and simple outlines.

The art was really easy to recreate and I am pleased with the work in my sketchbook."



"I had never really thought about trying to make my sketchbook 3d before today.

I am proud of how my Keith Haring style pop-up turned out."



History: Holocaust

Year 6 were very fortunate to have a morning with guest speaker Mr Cohen. Mr Cohen explained to us how his family were directly impacted by the Holocaust. We were enthralled as he explained how his mum had to flee Austria and seek refuge in the UK. 

We were also lucky enough to handle artefacts from the time as Mr Cohen brought in a necklace and a candlestick that were smuggled out by family members. 

‘It was fascinating to hear the stories about Mr Cohen’s family.

It makes you realise how lucky we are’.



‘I really enjoyed listening to Mr Cohen. I already know lots about WW2;

however it was interesting learning about how it impacted upon individuals and families.

I will enjoy telling my own family about it later on.’ 

History: Rebuilding Britain post WWII

Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed our ‘Rebuilding Britain 🇬🇧’ topic. From the introduction of the NHS, to the ‘Windrush Generation’, we have loved learning about this significant period in history.
