Art Week

Art week has started and in Year 6 we are focusing on canal art as this follows on nicely from our history topic. The children have been focusing and working really hard on perfecting their canal style floral paintings of roses.

Clay Tiles

Year 6 have created their very own Maya tiles using clay. They designed their tiles using influences from other pieces of Maya art and then used the clay tools to create it! The children had so much fun doing them and they all turned out to be fantastic!

Art Week

Year 6 Eagles have had a fabulous Art week learning all about an African artist called Ephrem Kouakou. We studied the techniques he uses, and then had a go at creating our own piece in a similar style. We took photographs of the children and then used various materials to produce individual interpretations of the artist’s piece called ‘Four women in Bloom’. I’m sure you’ll agree…the children have produced some impressive pieces themselves.

Game developers

In the past few weeks, Year 6 Eagles have become game developers by planning, developing and then testing their games. The children then designed front covers for their games with an online safety PEGI rating provided for the game.

Once completed, the children started to create front covers for their games including key elements, age rating, description, title and screenshots.

The children had a choice of creating one game, based on the following:

The children have demonstrated their knowledge of both programss. Some chose to create a Scratch game and others decided they’d create a Kodu game.

They have nearly completed their games and front covers, on Friday we will have some examples on our blog here.
