Recently, the Year 6 students created an art Gallery to showcase their artwork created during IPC. The unit we were working on was called ‘Extreme Survivor’. As a part of this unit, students needed to explore the impact of humankind’s actions on the natural environment. Students selected their own issue to research. Issues ranged from melting ice caps, the poaching of rhinos, coral bleaching, and rising sea levels. Students then had to create awareness for their issue through an art piece. Students needed to consider how they would use the materials to communicate their message. Each artwork was very unique and included a variety of artistic skills. Art pieces ranged from sketches, paintings to collages. The students were very proud to share their work and understanding with students from primary and secondary, and also their parents. It was fantastic to hear the conversations that were prompted by the artwork. Below are some extracts from the students explaining their work.
