Over the past two week we have been very busy in year 6! We have visited the Grundy art gallery to look at paintings to inspire our art work based on events during world war 2. Our attention was drawn to a painting of a dove by Picasso and a bleak scene of the trenches.

 We were particularly impressed by a painting of a rainbow drying on a washing line entitled, 'Wet Rainbow'. Following on from our science topic on light we thought it would be a great idea to use our scientific knowledge and combine it with the 'wet rainbow' idea and see what we can create. Our work will be exhibited in the Grundy Art gallery next year!

Monday was very exciting! We became crime scene investigators, using our critical thinking skills to solve a murder! We learnt how to analyze evidence, brush a crime scene for finger prints, check DNA profiles, cross check statements and finally we became the court complete with judge to sentence the criminal.  



We would like to thank all those who came to our history day, we were overwhelmed by the response and the kind words you had to share with us.
