Below are some examples of the fantastic learning that has been happening at home. I have been very impressed with the effort lots of you are putting in to the tasks set - well done!
This page will be updated with ideas for activities to do at home and links to websites and resources that you might find useful. Remember - there will not be Google classroom activities over the Easter break but you can still do your daily Bug Club, Doodle Maths and Spelling Shed. Have a lovely break everyone! Miss Chiddy

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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
