Year 5 – What Is The American Dream?
Through our class novel ‘Twist of Gold’ by Michael Murpurgo, pupils have been learningabout the impact of the Great Famine, which led to the mass migration of Irish people to the USA. In search of answers to our class project ‘What is the American dream?’, pupils researched information about The Statue of Liberty.
In class, we have been discussing if the symbolisation of freedom and democracy, has been achieved by those in search of the American Dream!
Through Art and Design, pupils recreated the Statue of Liberty’s iconic features. After they took still images of their peers in pose. Finally, through the development of line drawing and shading skills, pupils created self portraits.
