Golden Eagles

Friday 23rd September 

Another busy week in Golden Eagles! Here are some of our highlights:


- Retelling the Wars of the Roses in topic lessons using a comic strip or playscript. 

- Creating battle freeze frames in English. We will use some of these ideas when we do our hot write next week.

- The grand opening of our calm corner. We worked collaboratively to create some rules.

- Applying our knowledge of rounding to solve problems. This really tested our resilience!


Here is an example below:

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?

Friday 16th September

We have been very busy this week in Golden Eagles. We have been exploring different emotions and have started using our well-being check in. The calm corner is currently under construction but we are excited to see it unveil next week - first we need to create some rules around how to use this space.


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 

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