Animated Objects have been working with the children in both Years 5 and 6. Year 5 have spent a wonderful two days immersed in the settings and characters of their class text ‘Journey to the River Sea’ bringing to life the thoughts and motivations that drive Maia, Finn, Clovis, Miss Minton and ‘The Carters’. Your children have embraced a range of drama skills working with motion and emotion looking at changes for characters throughout the story also comparing and contrasting the differences in personalities. They have taken part in, in-depth book discussions unpicking what may have motivated the writer to portray situations and events in the way that she did.
Meanwhile in Year 6 they have have been working on their artistic talents including their pointillism skills. They have created large landscape scenes of our local community in Bridlington, including well known landmarks such as The Bridlington Priory, Ebor Flats and the Beach. They have explored different techniques to create the texture of the land, sky and buildings.
