    History

    Year 6 have been looking at the use of bronze vessels during the Shang Dynasty. We have found out that they were inspired by animals and their symbolic characteristics, engraved, used in rituals and were even given to the King as gifts/good luck presents before going to battle his enemies.

    Music

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 6 got a very exciting visitor, Alan Swain. Alan works for the Welsh National Opera playing trombone and is working with schools on a project for Edge Music Festival this year. The piece that is being created this year, is all a reflection on the community, given the last year. Year 6 are getting the chance to contribute towards this by composing a piece of music called a sound picture based around Edward Jenner. Year 6 got inspired by learning how music is composed, how music is all around us and even had a go at trialing some ideas for their part. They are excited to welcome Alan back soon to put their ideas in practice and see it come alive.
