Boys will be taking part in a sponsored event to support the cause.

 

Year 5 Explore Medieval Hierarchy

This week Year 5 have been exploring what life was like during the fourteenth century, through the structure of social classes at the time.

They created a short dramatic piece in order to try and remember who was at the top of the pyramid and who was at the bottom.

They shared their knowledge and enjoyed learning acting like kings and serfs for the afternoon!

 

The Sky's the Limit

Year 3 boys have really enjoyed making these incredible sunset silhouette pictures. After honing their painting skills to create a sunset sky using a colour wash, they then practised their fine motor skills by drawing and cutting out a silhouette to stick on. The end results amazed the boys, who couldn't believe they had created such super pictures.

Year 5 art lessons took on the look of a 14th Century monastery as we made jewelled manuscripts. Designing and making 3D book covers was the first step as we then went on to age paper ready for block printing. There are some wonderful examples of early block printing and illuminated letters available online if the boys wish to research it further.
