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. Mrs Cameron is our Teaching Assistant and is a valuable member of the team.
In addition to English and Maths, the children study a wide range of cross-curricular topics. In History, their research includes the Victorians and the Ancient Greeks - with a visit to Sevington School dressed as Victorian children, and creating a Greek temple in their classroom! In Geography, the children study the Rainforest, which includes a day visiting a rainforest and handling some of the exotic, and sometimes scary, creatures!
Outdoor pursuits are encouraged in Eagles class with children experiencing the delights of abseiling, raft building, archery, and the zip wire, resulting in lots of team building!! We also participate in a whole range of sporting activities, including, tag rugby, athletics, cricket, hockey, high 5’s, football and the Mini Marathon.
Welcome back everyone!
We were all involved in Arts week and thoroughly enjoyed learning new techniques and creating some wonderful work which is now on display in the school. Please come and see it!
Last Thursday 20th June, our cricketers took part in a festival at Fonthill Park against other schools in our area. We played five matches and won them all so we were all very proud when we had to collect the trophy ... and named overall winners. Take a look at the photos in our gallery. The cricket team should be so proud of themselves and they were an absolute joy to be with.
Thursday 27th June was a very busy day for Eagles. 4 of our mathematicians took part in a Maths Challenge with 5 other teams. The day was held at Shaftesbury School and we were extremely pleased that our team finished first and came back with a very splendid trophy. A big well done to Sonny, Wilf, George and Jack R. We are very proud of you!
Year 6 were very lucky to be invited to Chalke Valley History Festival. We experienced Tudor cooking, asked questions about the wonderful display of guns and weapons, had a very scary session in the trenches and many more educational talks. We felt extremely lucky to have had this opportunity.
