Welcome to the Eagle Class web page

 

Welcome to the Eagle Class web page. Through clicking on the tabs below you will find a copy of our latest curriculum guide so that you know what your child is learning about this term, a handy reminder of what your child needs for each day so that you can help them to be as prepared as they can be and a Home Learning tab for you to know what learning is expected to be carried out at home.

 

The class team this year are Miss Chiddy, Mrs Nowland and Miss Linnert. Each morning as you drop your child off at the rear door to the school, a member of staff will be on the door to briefly answer any general questions you have or to pass a message on to the class team for them to either discuss the issue with you at the end of the school day or make a mutually convenient appointment for a longer discussion if needed. 

 

We will be taking part in a wide variety of learning activities throughout the school year and we will do our very best to add photos and write-ups of all of these wonderful experiences below so that you can enjoy sharing in your child's learning...

Read on to find out more about our amazing learning experiences this year...

Computing

 

In English we created our own hybrid animals that had been discovered in the Amazon Rainforest. Using a photo editing app, we created an image of these strange creatures. 

Deforestation

 

In geography, we have been learning about the human impact on rainforests around the world. We focussed on deforestation and created these amazing double page spreads to present our work. 

William Morris Art

 

In Art, we looked at the work of William Morris. In our sketchbooks, we gathered ideas and tried out some drawings and designs. We then used this to create an enlarged version of one of his patterns, using watercolour paint. 

Writing Workshop

On Monday, a group of children took part in a writing workshop at Mossbury School which was lead by the author Colin Parsons who shared his writing tips. Throughout the morning, the group created their own stories based on Colin's ideas for his new book 'The Gamer'. Colin informed them that he had not been interested in reading when he was younger but realised how important it is to develop writing ideas and feeding your imagination. His main tip for improving writing was "Read and read and read!"

British Schools Museum

Eagles visited the British Schools Museum as part of our topic 'The Victorians'. We took part in a Victorian lesson which was very different to those we have today! Following this, we looked around the old head master's house which was full of interesting artefacts and took part in an exercise drill session. It was a fantastic trip! We are now writing letters to thank the museum staff and will be writing recounts about our experience. 

Street Child

Our class book this half term is Street Child, a story about an orphan boy in Victorian times. We created freeze frames from the beginning of the book, portraying the characters' feelings through facial expressions and body language. We are using this book as inspiration for a range of writing in English.

French

In our French lessons with Miss Linnert we have been learning how to tell the time. To help us with this, we played 'What's the time Mr Wolf' using our French vocabulary. It was great fun!
