Hello and welcome to our class page.
My name is Miss Millward and I am the Year 6 class teacher for this academic year. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Read as our teaching assistant! We are really looking forward to getting to know your children and we have an exciting year ahead. We will keep you updated with what we are up to in class and you can find below the end of year expectations and what we will be learning about this term.
If you have any queries or questions at any time, please come into school and see us. Please note, homework will be given on Friday and collected in on Wednesday.
Thank you for you continued support.
Our Mission Statement
In Year 6 we have been studying our school mission statement and understanding what it means to us, how we can live it out and why it is important.
Next we worked in teams to create a visual mission statement. Each group chose a line to create a visual image of and worked hard together to produce each aspect. One team created all of the stained glassed windows, whilst others focused on the buildings of church and school. Another team made all of the components that make up the inside of a church, including the altar, organ and benches, whilst another did the same for the school building. A further team focused on the outside area, consisting of a cemetery, water feature and a lovely, creative tree.
The children thoroughly enjoyed this task and worked amazingly in their teams.
Andy Goldsworthy Artwork
We have been learning about the work of Andy Goldsworthy - he creates artwork and sculptures using only natural materials he can access outdoors. He has created many pieced using leaves, pebbles, snow, ice, rain silhouettes and many more. He carefully creates neat outlines using colour and overlapping of his materials. All of his work is immediately photographed and then lasts as long as the environment allows it to.
The children worked in groups to imitate his artwork using materials available to them within the outdoor space of our school.
After creating their group pieces they joined together as a whole class and made a piece together. They wrote 'We are one' on the hill of the field and created a bee using the colours of the autumn leaves.
The work they produced was amazing and they were all really proud of their efforts.
