Year 6 Discover Habitats of the World

As part of this term's project, Upper School entered a competition called 'Habitats of the World' run by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. Year 6 have written a short piece to explain, in their own words, a little more about what they have done for the competition:

"For our 'Habitats of the World' competition entry, we chose to explore somewhere close to home, Wimbledon Common, a place full of wildlife and a habitat to many creatures. This was an exciting land to investigate as, every fortnight, we go there to learn all about wildlife and nature at Forest School. 

This competition was a perfect opportunity to not only test our art skills, but also to test our teamwork skills because Years 4, 5 and 6 were all involved. We studied animals that live underground, in the sky and on land. Everybody chose a unique animal to learn about.

First, to educate ourselves, we created fact-files about our animals and learned many new and interesting facts. Then, we learned how to sketch realistically using shading to give our pictures texture and a bold look. Finally, making sure we focused on every single detail, we sketched our animal which took a lot of focus. 

For our display board, we created texture by experimenting with real wood, leaves and paint to make the background look like a woodland setting. We also created clay versions of our animals and camouflaged them in a natural habitat for the display.

We have loved taking part in this competition and we all rose up to the challenge with determined and creative minds."
