On the second of our two transition days we have focused on learning around our first topic, Land of the Free. We used the iPads to complete a QR Code Hunt around the school grounds to find out about the different US States. We will be using the information we found out to create non-chronological reports when we return in September. 

The Year 5/6 class have been identifying the work of Edgar Degas. They learnt that Degas was an impressionist who drew, painted and sculpted dancers. 
The class used this is as inspiration to create their own ballerinas. They researched ballet dance positions and used tinfoil to create the stance. The children discovered that if they use felt pen on filter paper and then add droplets of water, it will create an effect similar to that of Degas' work. We hope you enjoy looking at some of our work.
