Year 6 – Working as Historians – Romance Days

On Thursday 3rd – All of Year 6 set off on a walk to visit the local area that surrounds Anglia Square. Our main aim was to carry out historical observations and collect a range of photographs that showed different perspectives of the area. We covered a wide area in two different walks and made notes as we went.

We then spent the next day introducing our project with the help of Duncan Joseph from The Common Lot and Jeannette Baxter from Anglia Ruskin University. They spoke about how we are going to be building upon research that we carry our to take part in a community project to create a performance about Anglia Square.

We then set about using our new found knowledge from our walk to create observational maps/drawing.
