The Rights of The Child
As part of our topic on Vote 100 and women's right to vote, we have also been looking at what rights children have. We are preparing an Art piece based on the UN Rights of The Child that we have looked at in SMSC. For this piece, we will be using the images of our hands/arms and so have been experimenting with creating our exact skin tone with watercolour paints.
R.E. Day: 6th November 2018
Thursday 18th October, Holly Hill had an exciting visit from 60s cover band 'Revival'. The band (fronted by former Headteacher Geoff Ellis) played a set for the whole school, followed by a set for Y
5&6, which really got us up and moving! The band played a range of 60s hits from the likes of Chuck Berry and The Beatles, which enabled us to have possibly THE BEST assembly at Holly Hill EVER!
Huge thanks to the band for donating their time and talents to make our topic totally swinging!
(If you would like to check out their sound, you can hear samples on their website http://www.revival-web.com/ )
Raise The Colour Bar!
Inspired by the bus boycott Rosa Parks began in America, Paul Stephenson decided to begin one in Bristol in 1963 after the Bristol Bus Company declared that they would not hire any people of colour to work on their busses. Along with others, Paul Stephenson organised a city-wide boycott and peaceful protests to encourage the bus company to 'raise the colour bar'. Y5&6 have spent several lessons looking at the Civil Rights Movement as part of their History work on the 1960s and during one of these lessons, they demonstrated their understanding by acting out the events of the bus boycott in 1963.
Swans have been showing their artistic talents this week, as we explore 1960's artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. We've been using the pop art style to recreate some of their most famous art.
Lakeside Arts Centre
