Year 6 used paint and black card to create their calendars.They chose one colour and little by little, added white to create a lovely effect. They chose an animal to trace and copy onto card to create their silhouette which turned out lovely. Here are just a few from Year 6.
Yesterday 6H designed their own blackout poetry art by taking a piece of text from a WWII novel and selecting various words to build their own poem linked to the Holocaust. We had some fantastic ideas of what images to sketch and words to pick out of the text to highlight!
Take a look at some of the finished designs below which will be proudly displayed on the year 6 corridor!
During RE this week 6H have been investigating anti-Jewish laws brought into place by Hitlers Nazi party during the Holocaust. I was very impressed with the amount of interest 6H showed, lots of questions and discussion!
After our discussions and activity, year 6 put some of the important events on to a timeline.
Can you remember any of the laws? Which did you think were the worst and why?
Today during RE 6H have been beginning to learn of the suffering and persecution of the Jewish people during the Holocaust. We investigated the reasons behind Hitler’s hatred towards the Jews and how many Jewish people were killed during these terrible times.
We looked at some images taken during the Holocaust and discussed what may be happening and how the people in the images may have felt at that time. Some of those images are below.
Everyone asked questions on a post it note which will be used as discussion in next weeks session!
Can you remember any of the reasons why Hitler persecuted the Jews in this way?
