Black History Month Art – Adam Pendleton inspired

On Friday 20th October, 6C created artistic pieces inspired by American artist, Adam Pendleton. He uses collage, paint and other materials to create statement pieces, with some based on civil rights movements, such as the Black Lives Matter movement.

Children collected newspapers and images they wanted to use to create their own pieces. Lots of their work will go on display for the Thursday 2nd November ‘Black History at Clapham Manor’ celebration. This will be an after school event to showcase the whole school’s history and art work. Please come and see their great work!

Year 6 Study Packs and Science

To help with your homework and revision for SATs, you will soon be getting a year 6 study pack. This is a set of four books each covering parts of the year 6 curriculum, there’s a spelling book, English book, maths book and a science book. You will sometimes be told what page to focus on for homework that day or week, but you are also expected to use it independently to revise and take responsibility for your own learning. The books ARE NOT TO BE WRITTEN IN, activities should be completed on paper or in school books, if needed.

The study packs cost £5 – you will get this back if the books are brought back at the end of the year, or the £5 can go towards the trip at the end of the year to Chessington! Once you’ve given in your money, Mr Cullen will give you the pack.

A Week of Adventure

This week some of us have been adventuring in the Brecon Beacons in Wales and some have been staying closer to home – but equally testing their navigational and outdoor natural thinkers skills.

In two weeks we will be performing our first sharing assembly (Friday 13th October), giving us a chance to bring our parents and careers some live broadcasts and stories from our adventures this week!

We need your help – choose a day, a moment or an activity that you really loved (or hated to begin with), something you found difficult or challenging, frightening or impossible and write a news report of this. Remember the work you did on news reports in year 5 – it can be a broadcast or a written report – remember your audience and the purpose – to inform your audience of the event! Your report can be on any challenges or activities from the week, e.g. the school journey hike, the trip to Downe Village, the climbing or abseiling, or map reading at Downe.

Happy reporting – deadline day is Friday 6th October!  – complete on paper or type and print out, can email Mr Cullen if you do not have a printer. Visit the Clapham Manor twitter page for more School Journey pictures.
