Amazing Homework 19.11.21

Anti-bullying Week - 19/11/21


This week as part of Anti-bullying Week, the Eagles spent time considering what bullying is, what form it can take and how we can all act to stop it.  We looked at this year's message of 'one kind word' and created our 'one kind word' hands.  It has been wonderful to see so many of the class putting this into practice over the week.

One Kind Word

Unofficial Class Outing - 16/11/21

It was wonderful that so many of the children who went to see Macbeth by Candlelight were keen to share their experience this morning.  It seems that they all had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the play - even the parts with the witches!  A few future theatre critics thought that Banquo's death scene needed work...  Thank you so much to everyone that managed to attend - it has clearly had a very large and positive impact.

Debate 12.11.21

The Eagles have honed their debating skills this week.  We held a debate to decide 'Is Lady Macbeth responsible for her husband's downfall?'  There were strong arguments for both sides and the final vote was fairly evenly split.  In the end, most of the class believed that she was responsible.

Outdoor Learning Day


The Eagles really enjoyed their outdoor learning day. In the morning, we went to Forest School, where we toasted marshmellows and made popcorn!

We spent the afternoon with our Year 1 buddies, helping them complete an outdoor scavenger hunt and creating some art using natural resources.

Playground Pals



Year 6 started their work as 'Playground Pals' this week.  They have been on the playground playing games with the younger children and acting as fabulous role models.  Well done for all your hard work so far Eagles!

More Eagles' Homework 24/09/21




The moment Year 6 had been waiting for finally arrived on Monday this week, when they met their Year 1 buddies! All the Eagles listened to their buddy read and enjoyed finding out more about each other. They played lots of games together and the younger children certainly kept the Eagles on their toes! 

It was lovely to see all the Year 6 children being so responsible and caring with their buddies. 

Keep up the good work Eagles!

Well done Eagles!



Eagles have set the bar high with their first week of home learning.  We had a wonderful array of Tudor based work and enjoyed taking the time to share and celebrate it this morning (17th September).  Let's hope that this standard is maintained over the year!


This week, all of the Eagles have shown us how mature they are, as they have taken the changes to our usual routine in their stride and continued to work very well.  Keep it up Year 6!

Some of Eagles' Homework 17/09/21

A great start to the year!



The Eagles have made a great start to Year 6.  They have enjoyed having different teachers and a staggering three classrooms!  So far they have been getting to grips with Macbeth, exploring place value, finding out about the human body and researching Tudor dates.  The class is working very hard and demonstrating this month's school value of responsibility.  We have every confidence that they will continue to be an amazing Year 6!
