Introducing the lovely Year 6
2021 - 2022
Our chosen theme 'Graffiti' will inspire our writing this term and allow us to cover a range of genres including: non-chronological reports, biographies, instructions, explanation and discussion texts. I am sure they will have a lot to say when we debate whether graffiti is a form of art or vandalism later on in the term. This will open up many opportunities for a wide range of speaking and listening activities.
One of our first genres of writing this term has been instructional writing, where pupils were given the opportunity to create their own Keith Haring inspired vanilla biscuit. They worked in groups to: weigh out the ingredients, follow a simple recipe and flood ice in bold colours - just like Keith Haring's artwork. They explored the wide range of vocabulary that they used whilst actively making the biscuits including imperative verbs, time conjunctions, prepositional phrases and expanded noun phrases to name a few! They then used this varied and rich vocabulary in their final HOT instructional writing task.
We hope you like the finished product as much as we did!!
Keith Haring inspired art work
Year 6 investigated Keith Haring's graffiti art style and followed a step-by-step tutorial to create their own versions inspired by his popular artwork.
I think you'll agree that they all look fantastic!!
