We have been reading a novel in our Literacy lessons called Wolf Brother, about a young boy named Torak who is left to fend for himself in the prehistoric forests of Europe after loosing his dad. Luckily, he has found kinship on his journey in a young wolf cub.
All is not as it seems though, as the story keeps hinting towards Torak having some kind of gift. This has lead to much speculation and prediction about where the story is heading...
Daymer Bay have been learning about the ancient cave paintings found in Europe. We discovered how prehistoric people created tools and paints to create artwork on the walls of the caves in which they dwelled. We learnt about how they often painted hunt scenes in the hope of it bring luck to their actual hunting trips.
We created our own, modern-day, scenes of harvest in the style of these cave paintings to show at the harvest festival.
Last week, in Daymer Bay, the children created artwork in enter in Callington's Honey Fair art competition.
The theme for Year 6 was 'Dreams' and the children decided they wanted their art to be honeycomb-shaped. They then painted silhouette style scenes of their dreams over the top. Some chose to paint scenes of the dreams they have at night, others chose to paint their aspirations for the future.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
