Story of the week01 Feb 2016
The Spring Term has begun well at Highgate Primary. The school is buzzing with energy and the children are happy to be back and full of curiosity.
Year 6 leapt back in time this week for their new topic, The Swinging Sixties, by action painting in the style of Jackson Pollock. Accompanied by a Beatles soundtrack, they cast off their shoes, socks and artistic inhibitions, working as a collective to produce three vibrant canvasses. Following in the footsteps of the abstract expressionist painter who opened the door for 1960s art, the aim was to express feelings. This was an invigorating (and reasonably messy) start to the term.
