Welcome to the Eagles class webpage!
A huge welcome to all of our Eagles parents! Our main focus at the moment is making sure that all of the children are settling back in to life at Wymondley School. With such a disjointed last six months, we are currently putting a lot of work into ensuring that the children have positive mental health and that they are enjoying their time at school. Our curriculum guide below gives you more information on what the children will be learning about over the autumn term...
Please also make sure that you are checking your emails for current information and that your child is logged into their Google Classroom, as this will be our main platform for communication this year and will be where you will be able to find more details on remote learning as and when it is needed. Your child will also be able to contact me directly from Google Classroom (or parents can on their child's behalf). Parents are able to contact me through the school email address at email@example.com for either an emailed response, or to arrange an outside socially distanced meeting at a time of mutual convenience. Please feel free to approach a member of the team for a conversation, from a safe distance, at pick up time or to pass on any information at drop off time.

As the term progresses, the children's learning will be added below for you to enjoy and discuss with your children at home...
For our whole school learning linked to the books 'Wonder' for Eagles and 'We are all Wonders' for the rest of the school, Eagles class created their own wonder inspired art. We use images similar to those in the book and added words around that we would use to describe ourselves - those things that make us all unique and wonderful!
As part of our harvest festival celebrations, Eagles Class learned about the Jewish festival 'Sukkot' and groups made a model sukkah.
Our British School Museum trip was great fun! We took part in a Victorian lesson, toured the headmaster's house and learned more about schools in Victorian times.
Some of our memories from last year...
In RE, we have been learning about Buddhism. We created these comic strips to show the origins of Buddhism.
As part of our learning about Harvest this year, we looked at the work of farmers in other countries and focussed on the use of bees in Nepal. We then created some artwork linked to this showing the things in our lives that we are grateful for.
In Science, we learned about fossils and a scientist named Mary Anning. We created double page spreads to present our information.
Maths - Angles
For our learning on angles, we went outside to find different types of angles and measure them. In another activity, we were allowed to draw on the table!! We measured these angles then found out about the properties of angles on a straight line, full turn and those opposite to each other.
During Science week, Eagles class carried out different activities to investigate forces such as gravity, air resistance and friction. We investigated how the surface area of a parachute affects how it falls and how friction makes activities easier or harder. We also took part in the STEMPOINT challenge to create an insect using only six pieces of paper!
