 HOW PARENTS/CARERS CAN HELP

Dashboard maths resource for Year 6 children and parents/carers

  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. 

Examples of our work so far

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 was born on 14th July 1862 in Austria.
  • His mother was a musical performer and his father was an engraver of gold.
  • Gustav was a talented artist from a young age and he attended the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts.
  • Klimt lived a simple life. When at home, he wore a long robe and sandals. 
  • Some of Klimt’s most famous works include: ‘The Kiss’, ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’, ‘Houses in Unterach on the Attersee’, and ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II’.
  • Gustav Klimt never painted a self-portrait. 
  • Klimt died on 6th February 1918. He suffered with pneumonia following a severe influenza outbreak and he died of a stroke. He is buried in Vienna. 
  • One final interesting fact about Klimt is that his ‘Adele Bloch-Bauer I’ portrait sold in 2006 at auction for more money than any other painting ever had before: $135 million!

                             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?
