Black History Month in Year 6
As part of celebrating Black History Month, the pupils in year 6 have linked their art topic 'Cityscapes' with learning about Stephen Wiltshire. Stephen was born in London to West Indian parents on 24th April, 1974. As a child he was mute, and did not relate to other people. Aged three, he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language and lived entirely in his own world. Stephen, who was always very much drawn to art, is now an outstanding artist, who has produced a number of masterful cityscape drawings. The pupils in year 6 made use of the current glorious weather to create factual posters about this exceptional artist.
