Gallery Rebels

A predominantly art based project

Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone… Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels!

Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought or an idea?

Dream the dream – or show us your nightmares! What do you see? Watches melting? Wheels spinning? A shark in a box? Can you express yourself without words? Well, a picture paints a thousand of them!

Let’s try our hand at a Damien Hirst sculpture, or explore the weird and wonderful world of Surrealism with Salvador Dali, to create a curious treasure for the next generation.

Paintbrushes and sketchbooks at the ready – let’s make art!

We worked really hard on our RE work linked to Easter.

We were able to showcase this during our special Easter Service at St Francis’ Church.

We had lots of fun at the Y5/6 cinema evening.  We brought pillows, teddies and blankets with us too.

The popcorn was great and so were the pizzas and hotdogs.

We just love to be challenged in our mathematical thinking.

Working together to find the solutions and explain our thinking.

Super art work linked to our project Hola Mexico

Learning how to play chess has been really interesting.  

It’s quite taxing too.

What makes our maths lessons even more fun is when we become the teachers!

We like to take charge of our learning.


During Science Week we explored the effect of different liquids on our teeth.

We were shocked with some of our conclusions and realised a little bit more about the importance of what we drink.

Sophie baked a cake at home as part of the Y6 enterprise fundraiser.

Evie’s artwork impressed one of our visitors to school.

Our Mother’s Day cards were well received by our families.
