Pixel art in Year 6!

We have had another busy week filled with new learning. We have nearly finished our biographies which we are looking forward to displaying in class and sharing with the younger children. In RE we have been thinking about the ‘Our Father’ and what it really means. We even managed to find it in the New Testament. Our focus has turned to multiplication in maths and we have started to explore a range of methods to support us when problem solving.

Take a look at some of our art work below…we have been looking at digital media techniques with a focus on the artist – Ivan Dixon. I think we have some game developers of the future!

Below are a couple of reminders for next week. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Have a lovely weekend with your families.
