Vincent Van Gogh

Having been on a recent visit to Amsterdam, Ms. Sexton found the local art work and history of the amazing Vincent Van Gogh to be fascinating. His vision, creativity, ideas, use of theme and colours were all unique to his erratic style. Which in turn helped to create his infamous masterpieces, which unfortunately did not become famous until he had died at 38. With this in mind the girls in Ms. Sexton’s Sixth Class decided to look at the painting ‘Starry Night’ and look, respond and paint their reactions to it. The results were quite amazing! We have a few budding Van Gogh’s in our class for sure! Well done girls!

Ms. Sexton’s 6th Class Comparative Study

Here are the girls in Ms. Sexton’s Sixth Class who were busy at work today typing their comparative reports in the computer room. The girls recently read the novel ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ by John Boyne. It was fascinating and extremely interesting and gave a great insight into the life of a Jew during WW2. However, we decided to do a comparative study and we watched the movie of the same title and compare the text and the movie to see what we preferred. It was almost a split decision as to what we preferred, as both text and movie portrayed different emotions using different techniques. Overall a very interesting analysis. Well done girls.
