Good morning year six. Today is our final art lesson for our island topic. Today, your task is to sketch/draw your final island. Below are some pictures for inspiration! Enjoy!

VE Day – Union Jack

Today marks 75 years since the end of World War Two in Europe.

Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May 1945 saw Britain and its Allies formally accept Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender after almost six years of war.

At 15:00, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany’s surrender the day before.

Spontaneous celebrations broke out across the country and the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, and her sister Princess Margaret, ventured out with a group of friends to experience the excitement in London.

Your art task today is to draw our nations flag, the Union Jack. I will be putting my flag up on my window at home!


In theme with our topic this half term, we will be looking at sketching different types of animals who may live on your own island. Today, we will be learning how to sketch and draw five jungle animals. These are a caiman, jaguar, sloth, squirrel monkey and a toucan.

Please share your sketches via our blog if you want to.


Good morning year six. I hope you are all well.

For our final art lesson this half term, I would like you to sketch the moon to bring closure to our space unit. Below is a video which shows you the different skills needed to sketch the moon. I have also uploaded some pictures for inspiration!

If you can, why not attach a photograph of your finished moon.

Very best wishes,

Mr Cambridge.
