In Year 1 we have been learning about the UK and Jamaica. We have located the UK on a map of the world and located places in the UK and coloured the flags. We then located Jamaica on a map of the world. We coloured the Jamaican flag. We learnt about 2 famous people from Jamaica - Usain Bolt and Bob Marley.
We talked about Usain Bolt's achievements and drew what we would like to achieve in the future.
In Year 2, we have been learning about who Mary Seacole is. We have found out lots of amazing new facts about her, such as, where she was born, why she is famous and how it is important to remember her. To celebrate Mary Seacole, the children carefully drew portraits of her and coloured these in. The children were extremely conscientious to ensure that they included all of Mary's medals. Take a look!
In Year 3 we have been learning about Barack Obama, his life, values and impact on society. We worked together to create a piece of group artwork and then wrote about what we would like to achieve to create a better world.
In Year 4 we have been learning about Rosa Parks and the impact she had by refusing to give up her seat. We created posters that could have been used to encourage local people to join the bus boycott!
In Year 5 we looked at the life of Nelson Mandela. We explored his message of peace and working together; creating some collaborative Pop Art to celebrate his life.
In Year 6 we have been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. We discovered how his early life impacted on his ambitions and visions for the future. We discussed his "I have a dream" speech and used this to inspire our own artwork; thinking about his legacy and impact on our lives today.
