Year 6 team
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.
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.
Year 6 enjoyed Tag Rugby!
Autumn Term 2017
This Year 6 class page will be updated regularly during the year.
 
So far we have started our new topic Invaders and settlers 410 - 1066.
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.
