Crested Eagles

Friday 23rd September 2022


This week, we have been looking at the Wars of the Roses. We acted out the key events during our Topic lesson - thank you Freddie T, Marley, James, Charlie and Sophie for your fabulous acting skills! We then created comic strips of the event.


In English, we began to imagine what it must have been like to be on a Tudor battlefield. We created a series of freezeframes and performed them to the class - see our pictures below smiley


In Maths, we have been looking at rounding numbers. We have had some very tricky problems to solve, such as:


A and B are integers. 

A = 300,000 to the nearest 100,000

B = 300,000 to the nearest 10,000


What is the greatest possible value of A + B?

What is the smallest possible value of A + B?

What is the greatest possible value of A - B?


Do you think you can work it out? enlightened



Wars of the Roses Freezeframes

Friday 16th September 2022


What a brilliant week we have had! Crested Eagles have been working extremely hard and have been learning about:


English - using figurative language to describe a setting, such as similes, metaphors, personification and hyperbole. 

Maths - representing and partitioning numbers up to 1,000,000. 

Science - creating and describing different solutions (see pictures below!)

Topic - locating the countries and oceans visited by Sir Francis Drake and mapping out his route 


Year 5 began their ukulele lessons this week and Year 6 have spent more time getting to know their Year 1 buddies. 




Science - creating and describing solutions

Welcome Back Crested Eagles!


We have had a fantastic start to the new school year - have a look at our photos below of some of the things we have got up to this week! smiley
