Year 6 would like to invite you to our forthcoming exhibition celebrating your children’s wonderful work on their project on Black British musicians. This event will be held on Friday 18th October from 2pm to 3.15pm in their classrooms. We hope to see you there!
Yesterday, Eagle class put the finishing touches to their musical instruments. They also tested them out to ensure they made a sound. The whole class have done extremely well and should feel proud of their achievements.
Following on from their lesson last, the children in Hawk class were working on finishing their musical instruments in their groups. They were reminded of the different techniques we had been discussing, such as painting and decorating with different materials, ranging from printing to collage. They all enjoyed demonstrating their different techniques -we hope you do too!
As part of our project on British black music, in DT Hawk looked back at the musical instruments they designed before using the resources they brought from home to start building their own musical instruments. They worked collaboratively in small groups with lots of sticky tape and glue-lots of sticky fun, as we hope you can see! We would be grateful if you could carry on bringing in the resources this week too, please!
The homework for this week is to learn the following spellings:
As well as this, please continue with your times tables. You should now have your Rock Stars login details, so have a go at logging in this weekend and see how you do.
Finally, most of us have now at least begun our musical instrument. If you didn’t bring the materials in this week, please do so for next Tuesday, and if you have finished your instrument, think about how you would like to improve or decorate it.
In Art last week Hawk have been using printing ink to start designing their album covers, cross-linking to their topic on Black British music. They looked at examples of printed album art, then watched the teacher modelling how to print using printing ink, a whiteboard, roller and a sharp pencil. The class then started on their own designs,some of which are shown here. Aren’t they amazing?
