Years 5/6 - Our Summer 2019 Big Picture question:
What is Art? (A Journey through the Ages)
Welcome to Years 5 and 6! Our class names are Robins (Y5), Woodpeckers (Y5), Owls (Y6) and Magpies (Y6). Our learning always starts with a big question. We are planning some interesting memorable experiences and we will conclude our term with an opportunity to share our learning with an audience.
Summer is our 'Create' term. Artistic knowledge and understanding are our starting points, and other subjects link to our theme wherever possible. Our Knowledge Organisers provide specific curriculum content and vocabulary that will be learned by children.
As part of the Big Picture plan, we aim to give children a memorable experience to inspire them in their learning. This term, for example, we visited Weston Park museum in Sheffield, where historians helped us to discover what life was like for people living in the Bronze Age.
Authentic Outcomes: Working with Waterstones Lincoln
We have written our very own book based on our learning about The Romans this term, which has been published. We enjoyed a very special launch evening at Waterstones Lincoln, where a panel of visitors critiqued out work. They included guests from Lincoln City Football Club and Bishop Grosseteste University. Our parents families and teachers are very proud of us!
