Black History Month!
Many important facts and events were studied while Year 6 were learning about Black History Month. The children enjoyed learning about and recreating work fromLoïs Mailou Jones.
Loïs Mailou Jones (1905–98) an influential artist and teacher, paved the way for black artists who had been shut out of the world of fine art.
She was an American artist and educator. She painted works in a variety of styles, including impressionist, abstract, and African-influenced styles. Her paintings were noted for strong color and design.
History - World War 1
The children have been working hard while learning about the First World War. They enjoyed working as a team to show everything they had learned by putting together a timeline of events. I do not think that there is anything that they do not know about World War 1!
Science: Evolution and Inheritance
In this lesson, we looked at inherited and environmental characteristics and touched on their role in variation, using Mr Men as a frame of reference. The children were able to see how characteristics in our DNA are passed down from our parents resulting in features from both sides of our family. We compared those features to features created from our environment rather than from our genes.
