Creative Week - Liverpool in the early 1960s

 

During our creative week, Year 4 looked at life in the early 1960s in Liverpool!

- We created a  timeline and biography on John Lennon's life.

- We learnt all about musical influences such as The Beatles, Cilla Black and Gerry and the Pacemakers and created an album cover based upon the 1960s styles and designs.

- We compared what children and young people used to do in their spare time then to now.

- We found out about all the different fashion styles in the 1960s, created a moodboard of our favourites, designed a 60s inspired outfit for a doll and made it!  Some of our parents and carers even helped us with this during our open day.

-We also created our own fantasy football teams using players from LFC and EFC in the early 1960s.
