Years 5 and 6 have had a fantastic day at the Hay Festival; celeb spotting and being inspired by some incredible authors.
As part of our topic ‘Incredible Inventions’, we have been investigating what makes an inventor great. We found out about the work of Louis Pasteur and used this to inspire our artwork and sewing. We researched incredible inventors and the members of the suffragettes and created our own book biography pages. Take a look at some of our incredible work!
Children in KS2 have been thinking about ‘connections’. After learning about and creating the sounds of the London Underground, we created poems using metaphor and presented them in the style of a tube map. Inspired by Banksy, we created artwork with a message; encouraging people to connect in person and with the outdoors, instead of through screens!
As part of our travel themed topics, 3/4P, 4/5SL and 6J joined together to celebrate all things aeronautical. We learnt about the history of flight, investigated the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and created loop gliders, investigating which would fly the furthest. Finally, we collaborated on a Da Vinci inspired flying machine mural! Take a look…
