Art Nouveau in Year 6

Today, we looked at William Morris, a Victorian artist responsible for Art Nouveau in England. His designs mostly included patterns for interior design. We each looked at one of his designs and commented on what we liked, what we didn’t like, how he would have created it and what materials would be needed. We will be creating our own patterns very soon…

Year 6 Half Term Projects

Autumn 1

Art project for WWII

This half term, we learnt about WWII and how people protected themselves in London and other cities during the Blitz- this was when Germany targeted large cities with bombs to destroy the workings of the country. People used shelters to keep themselves safe. The two main shelters they used were Anderson shelters and Morrison shelters. An Anderson shelter would be found in the garden and could have in it beds, foods and lamps where many people could congregate. A Morrison shelter would be found in the home and some families even used them for tables, beds and play rooms for children. There were a lot smaller and could only fit up to 6 adults.
