Year 6 William Morris

In year 6, we have been learning about British textile designer William Morris, as part of our Victorians topic. After exploring many of his designs, we created our own repeating wallpaper patterns, using lines of symmetry.


Year 6 Angels

As part of our whole school Art day, Year 6 thought about the role of angels as messengers. As a group we considered what role messages angels might bring if they came today and then created our own clay angels. We think they look great and hope you can visit Christchurch in Eaton to see our exhibition in the coming weeks.


Gary Northfield

In November, author and illustrator Gary Northfield returned to Colman Junior School to share the latest adventures of Julius Zebra.

Gary told us all about his early love for comics like The Beano and he talked about how he came up with the idea of a Roman Zebra. Finally, he taught us all how to draw our own cartoons. Don’t they look great?

Look out for the Julius Zebra series in our school library.
