Year 6 Make their voice heard!
In Year 6 this half-term we have started our unit on the Mayas. We have learnt about who discovered them, and used the atlases to locate Central America where their civilisation was found. In art this half-term our unit is titled ‘Make my voice heard’. So far, we have created our own graffiti art using oil pastels and discussed the fact that some people believe graffiti is a form of vandalism, while others believe it is a form of art and a way to express themselves. We have also made our own Kathe Kollwitz inspired expression piece using graphite sticks and some basic shading with very pleasing outcomes. This week, we began our new literacy unit based on David Wisniewski’s book Rain Player. This story tells us about a game of Pok-a-Tok which finds a player challenging a God to a game in order to release rain to his village.
