Grafham Water
 
We have added a selection of photographs taken at Grafham that represent the range of activities that we did. 
Year 6 had their art day on Thursday February 8th. We concentrated on maths and art.
On January 17 we were visited by a science ambassador from Mundipharma. We studied real hearts and lungs, saw dissections, handled the parts and completed diagrams to help us to learn the vocabulary and the functions of the parts.
Autumn Term 2017
We looked at place name evidence to see where the Anglo Saxons settled. When we put the map together it was clear that there were concentrations of settlement along the North East coast and in East Anglia and the South East.
Year 6 visited Ely Cathedral on Thursday 5th October. We celebrated the links between the Diocese of Ely and India. We created group dances and some of us participated in a play about St Thomas. 3 of us played our instruments in the orchestra during the final act of worship.    
Year 6 enjoyed Tag Rugby!
We looked at photographs of Viking artefacts and tried to work out what the objects were, what they were made of and what they  were used for. We thought about what they told us about how Vikings lived.
Lego Mindstorms programming club has started during the lunch break on Fridays. 
During Fair Trade Day we studied the production of bananas in St Lucia. We realised that fair trade means that small farmers get a fair income for the very hard work that they do.
The Spring Term 1 Maya project is a mini half term project looking mainly at the history of the Central American Maya culture. Take a look at the Powerpoint for a brief Maya overview.
