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.
Welcome back everyone!
We started off well this term with some glorious weather but ... with a number of football tournaments on the calendar, the weather has taken a turn for the worse! If your child has been selected to play, can you please make sure they have plenty of warm clothing.
Soon, we are hoping to be holding an Evacuee Day with Ros Liddington at Tisbury. I am still waiting for details but will send a letter home as soon as all necessary arrangements are confirmed. The children, and staff, will need to be dressed as an evacuee - so bare that in mind!
Last week we had a visit from a lady called Jo who led activities on 'Dinton at Night.' We became Rangers and found out lots of facts about space, planets and constellations. She also works closely with Tim Peake - so we were very impressed!
