Autumn topic: The Victorians
During the Autumn term, Year 6 have been learning about The Victorians during afternoon curriculum lessons. So far, we have learnt about the Industrial Revolution and the six main reasons for its growth and success during the Victorian period. We have also researched and written about Victorian inventors such as Alexander Graham Bell who patented the early telephone and Lewis Howard Latimer who worked closely with Bell. We have learnt about The Cystal Palace which housed over 100, 000 items and received more than six million visitors whilst it was open. We are currently learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his breakthrough inventions such as The Great Western Railway. Throughout our topic, we will continue to build on our knowledge and understanding of the Victorian era.
Autumn term art project: Gustav Klimt
In Year 6, we have been studying the artist Gustav Klimt this term. We read and researched information about his childhood, education and artwork. Here are some facts we found out about him:
Gustav Klimt's artwork is easily recognisable because of its unique style
His artwork is full of geometic patterns, swirls, shapes within shapes, lots of gold leaf and usually features examples of nature and the human form. How many of these features can you find in our Gustav Klimt inspired artwork?
