  • Making our Mark

    Published 14/09/22

    Year 6 have very quickly settled back into life at Sheen Mount.  In the first couple of weeks of the new academic year, we have been learning about the experience of the children who were evacuated during World War II as part of our history lessons.  We have also started to read our core text, “Letters from the Lighthouse”, in which two children are evacuated to Devon to keep them safe from the Blitz.  We are looking forward to writing our own letters in the style of an evacuee next week.

    This week we really enjoyed consolidating and extending our understanding of colour mixing and theory as part of our unit of work on Mark Rothko and Abstract Expressionism.

    Year 6 are enjoying learning about geometric patterns within Islamic art. During our initial lessons, we have looked at how these patterns were used throughout the early Islamic civilization on tiles, building, ceramics and carpets to name but a few. This week we focused on tessellation, which is an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping.

    Last Friday, we were lucky enough to have a visitor, Mr Vine, to talk to Year 6 about becoming a director for Disney. He spoke to the children about his ambitions as a child, the way in which he uses story boarding and how important it is to surround yourself with talented people and learn from them. We then, with a side of popcorn, enjoyed watching his latest Disney film 'Ron's Gone Wrong'.
