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 characterisation - direct and indirect.
Following the prioritised math's curriculum, we are understanding numbers, both whole and decimal, when multiplying by powers of 10. Each lesson, we have 10 minutes on fluency, to keep our brains ticking overs.
In RE, we are continuing with Creation - creating our own artistic visualisation of how powerful it is and explaining its meaning individually.
Quick reminder that our trip to Lulworth Cove and New Barn is on Wednesday 19th May 2021. Not too long now! Remember the children need a throw away lunch on the day. We will be leaving school at 8.50am, returning at 7.30pm.
Please keep an eye on the weather forecast. I think a waterproof is essential!
Well done to all those children who have passed Bikeability Level 1 and 2. I have heard wonderful things said about you as a group - we are very proud of you
