In Year 6 this week, we had a go at creating our own graffiti name tags which was great fun. We explored fonts and colour by using the colour wheel and then had a go out on the playground to put our ideas into practice. We also used microsoft paint to recreate Banksy's famous 'Balloon Girl'.
Is graffiti art or vandalism?
To support the above question about street art, we have started to look at balanced arguments in English. We have discussed the structure of them and how they need to show evidence for both for and against. We will be practising how to write one through our sentence stacking lessons and also using our speaking and listening skills to hold a class debate.
In maths, we have been learning about the place value of numbers up to 10,000,000 and comparing and ordering them to show our understanding.
