Year 6 have had a super visit with, ‘That History Bloke,’ who taught them about Peter Barrett, a local Victorian. They had to use their skills of reading census data, looking at a headstone, learning about mining and pulling all this information together to find out what happened to him. They asked lots of interesting questions and worked well as a class to answer the questions about him. They then got to look at a variety of mining artefacts, which they really enjoyed. #dcpslion #dcpscore #dcpstopic #dcpshistory ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 were learning the drawing skills of hatching, cross hatching, stippling and ink wash then making their work lighter or darker using these techniques. They then used different mediums to create textures using poster paint and water colours together with cotton wool, tissue paper, sponges and a washing up brush! Im sure you agree, they are learning lots of skills. #dcpslion #DCPStiger #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday, Year 6 were learning about the technique of ‘Impasto’, where they had to layer the paint on to create a bumpy texture. We had been comparing actual versus implied texture. #dcpslion #dcpsart #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 were using their English skills in order to find out information about Amelia Earhart, run as fast as they could and share the facts with their team. They are using their teamwork skills to create a presentation to share with the class. Thank you to Phoebe for being our official photographer. #dcpslion #dcpscore #dcpspe #dcpstopic #dcpshistory #dcpsenglish #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

This week, Year 6 have enjoyed a virtual author visit with Ross Mackenzie who is the author of The Nowhere Emporium and Shadowsmith. This was part of the Northern Children’s Book Festival. We were able to listen to him talk about his childhood and what inspired him to become an author as well as his career as an award winning author. He read us some of his book and then gave us the opportunity to ask him some questions about his books and his career. It was a great session and we are all excited to read some more of his work.
