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.

In English, we will be starting our sentence stacking lessons, using our research of Charles Dickens and A Christmas Carol to aid detail and vocabulary. We will be focusing on persuasive, complex sentences and our use of commas to separate clauses. We will also consolidate alliteration and repetition to make our writing interesting.
In our science topic of electricity, we will be comparing and giving reasons for variations in how components function.
We are constructing a World War 11 Anderson Shelter in DT. This week, we will be creating gardens and camouflage for the shelter.
Our art project on the artist Henry Moore, and his drawings of people in London using underground stations as bomb stations during World War 11, is coming to an end. The children will be presenting and discussing what has worked well and how they could make improvements.
Our Geography topic of map skills involves measuring distances by using scales.
Homework will be set as usual with new spellings handed out on Monday.
This will be our last week of swimming on Thursday.
