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 McCarthy 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 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 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.
In English, we are .looking at story writing with a focus on mystery and suspense.
Following the prioritised math's curriculum, we are developing our understanding of fractions in maths. We are also looking at ratios and measurements to link into our class sweepstake on the Euro's 2020.
In Geography we are looking at locations and where places are in the wider world. We will be revisiting plate tectonics and where volcanoes are located and why.
Well done to our super cricket team who took part in the Fonthill Park tournament on Thursday 17th June. We did very well and came second out of 6 teams.
