The Shang Dynasty - China
This half term, Year 6 are studying the Shang Dynasty from Chinese history. We are also learning about Chinese New Year. This includes a visit to Chinatown in Birmingham, and a visit to Ming Moon! Watch this space for photos of our trip.
The children in Year 6 learnt about Edvard Munch, a Norwegian born, expressionist painter, and printer. The children created many forms of different artwork in the style of Munch for the topic on volcanoes.
Year 6 have enjoyed our music lessons using our scheme called Charanga. The learning in this unit is focused around one song: Mamma Mia by ABBA - a unit of work about ABBA, their music and how they contributed to the development of pop music. This unit incorporates an intergrated approach to music where games, the dimensions of music (pulse, rhythm, pitch), singing and playing instruments are all linked. The children are fully enjoying these music sessions.
