A massive welcome back after the six-week holidays! I hope you have had a fantastic summer and that you are ready for your final year of Pool House.
This has been a week of getting used to the new routines and expectations of year 6. We decided upon presentation standards for in our books in class, talked through the year 6 curriculum and created a class charter.
We also began looking at our History topic for this half term – World War Two! We started by looking at real propaganda posters. We discussed what propaganda was, and what these posters meant before attempting to design our own propaganda posters.
We also began our Art topic about Andy Warhol. We built on our knowledge of Andy Warhol from Year 5 and studied his ‘Campbell’s Soup Can’ images. We decided to create our own ‘modern’ version of these, replacing soup tins for cans of pop.
