Eagles

Eagles is a delightful class of hardworking children who are making the most of all the many opportunities available to them.

Mrs Andrews is the class teacher - she really enjoys teaching Years 5 and 6 and has years of experience with these age groups.  We are very lucky to have Mrs Southern as our TA.

In addition to English and Maths, the children study a wide range of cross-curricular topics. In History, their research includes the World War II and the Ancient Greeks - with a visit to Tisbury by train as an evacuee and creating a Greek temple in their classroom! In Geography, the children study the Rainforests in North and South America! 

Outdoor pursuits are encouraged in Eagles class with children experiencing the delights of a 3 day residential to Portland where they take part in kayaking, raft building, coasteering and many problem solving activities resulting in lots of team building!! A 3 day residential to London where the children take in the sights of our capital city is also held.  They experience a variety of enjoyable landmarks such as Westminster Abbey, Tower of London and The Houses of Parliament.  A trip to the theatre to see Lion King was a 'Wow' factor for everyone!

We also participate in a whole range of sporting activities, including, tag rugby, athletics, cricket, hockey, high 5’s, football and the Mini Marathon.
