Our Autumn Term title is: Lights, Camera, Action!
History and Geography
This half term we will studying the Vikings. Building on the pupils work in Year 5 on the Anglo-Saxons. We will look at the Geography of where the Vikings came from and what happened to those that decided to try and settle in the United Kingdom.
Art and Design Technology
Our focus this term will be on sketching and observation. This will link with our Science unit on light - we will sketch a human eye. We will also use sketching and painting to create a Viking Longship scene.
Our topics this term are light and electricity. We will be hoping to solve 'big questions' such as why is the sky blue? How are rainbows made? Who invented electricity? How do birds manage to sit on power lines without becoming injured?
This half of term we will be thinking about e-safety. We will explore how Internet search engines work and how to keep ourselves safe on-line.
PE this term will consist of Tag Rugby (Monday pm) and dance (Friday am). Therefore both indoor and outdoor kit will be required this term.
This term we will be going on two R.E based trips. One to Bedford for a faith tour - we will visit a Sikh Gurdwara, Muslim Mosque and a Christian church and learn how all these faiths within one community live in harmony. We will also visit Ely Cathedral for an annual school celebration.
