Today we practised asking and giving opinions on school subjects in Spanish…what brilliant accents and confidence we are developing.

What did you learn at Ghyll Head?

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:20am

Josh: First I t thought all the activities would be scary but once I did one activity I just kept pushing myself to do more. My favourite thing was jumping in the lake because it was something totally different – in fact I have only ever been in water in the bath or at the swimming pool!

Adam: It was definitely worth it because the instructors were really helpful and kind and encouraged us to do all the activities. I felt really proud that I did the zip-wire, I was very nervous before…but it was the best feeling ever when you take a step off the platform and fly through the air!

Olivia: The canoeing was definitely the best because we got to jump in the lake – when Wanessa went in first she screamed her head off! I felt really proud of myself during canoeing because I was very determined and tried my hardest to be a good leader. I think the food was amazing too,especially the desserts!

Taylor-Louise: I thought Ghyll Head was a great experience because there were so many activities to do. if you didn’t want to do one or you were scared, everyone supported you to have a go. I got to know some other children well that I didn’t know before in my group, like Emmanuel.

Check those fingernails!

Last week Year 6 met two terrifying teachers from the time of WW2: Mrs Gilbertson and Mrs Robertson. First there was a fingernail inspection…

Then the boys were separated from the girls and they had completely different activities….the girls had to do  all the task that girls in WW2 would have had to do, like cooking, folding clothes and ironing…

…while the boys got to play with jacks, cars, aeroplanes and toy soldiers…That’s hardly fair!!!

Then it was time to collect names on dance cards for partner at the upcoming WW2 Ravensbury Annual Ball…

What will you wear for the dance?

Andy Goldsworthy-inspired art part 2…

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 9:12am

Using the natural resources that we collected last time, we explored  some of the key elements of art to create our own work. This session we sketched the leaves paying attention to FORM….

…made a foam template and used them for some two-tone lino printing, paying attention to COLOUR…

…and finally made some natural sculptures using the laminator, paying attention to PATTERN.

Making Andy Goldsworthy-inspired natural sculptures

Autumn is the perfect time of year for some art, and Andy Goldsworthy is the perfect source of inspiration…. first we explored his natural, temporary sculptures and then went outside to find materials for our own. More to follow!
