Year 6 make Infinity Mirror installations

On Wednesday afternoon we looked at Yayoi Kusama’s amazing Infinity Room art installations (where she uses mirrors to make objects in a room appear to go on for infinity). Then, we created our own infinity rooms by joining together 4 mirrors. We had an amazing time exploring how different objects looked in our room.

Here’s some things we disovered:

“If we put 4 mirrors together and put something in the middle it duplicates”- Lilly

“Looking from different angles changed the view”- Devon

“If you put a pair of scissors in they look like a pyramid”- Lexie

“If you put things in at random, it still makes a beautiful pattern”- Leah

Year 6 Story Telling

In year 6 we have been practicing our story telling. First we heard the story of the Freedom Bird from Laura and Paul. We then storyboarded it and then stepped it out, miming each key event in the story. We practiced telling our version to a partner and then finally we told the story to the class.

Year 6 make their point(illism)

On Thursday, Year 6 had a go at creating their own pieces of art based on pointillism. This is a technique of painting in which small distinct dots of colour are carefully applied to paper to form a picture. The children used cotton-buds to create their dots and had to mix primary colours in order to create the range of colours they needed. As you can see, the results were fantastic!

Year 6 create Zen gardens

This term, we are learning about Japan and Japanese culture.

On Tuesday we found about Zen Gardens which have been popular in Japan for thousands of years. We spent some time outdoors using natural objects from around our field and playground as features in very own mini-Zen gardens.

We had a lot of fun and the results were fantastic.
