English in the woods and a very arty week in Oak Class

Oak Class’ English took us to a slightly unusual location for lessons this week: the woods! We wrote descriptions of the forest as a way to remember the many wonderful memories that Year 6 will take with them on their exciting adventures to come later this year. We began by thinking about amazing words to describe the forest before using them in sentences. On Thursday, with a brief interruption provided by the rain, we began to write some beautiful descriptions of what is such a special place to all of us at St Michael’s.

It has been a very arty week in Oak Class too. Mrs Cooper joined us as we began to thinking about painting landscapes, using the work of Monet as inspiration. On Thursday, we looked at the importance of perspective when painting landscapes before looking at how Monet used a huge variety of colours to show time of day and shadows – it was a real challenge attempting to recreate a section of Monet’s artwork today!

In everything we do, Year 6 continue to be an amazing, creative group of children. Thank you, Year 6, for a week of amazing hard work and all of the laughter too.
