Eagles Year 5/6

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...

Crucial Crew


Year 6 took part in our annual Crucial Crew trip. They learned about ways to stay safe and how to look after themselves and others in a range of scenarios. These included railway safety, mental health, fire safety and first aid. The children had a fun morning and represented the school brilliantly. 

Lion King Theatre Trip


On Thursday, Eagles class went on a spectacular trip to see the Lion King musical production in London's West End. The show, actors and staging was incredible and the children (and adults) had an amazing time.  





Maths Webinar

On Tuesday, Eagles class took part in a live maths webinar linked to the website NRich. This was streamed live around the world, with schools countries such as India and Argentina taking part. We were given a problem to start investigating in groups and time to solve it, before rejoining the webinar to hear solutions from other schools as well as further questions to investigate. We also came up with our own questions and looked into patterns we could see in the numbers. We will be sending our solutions and look forward to seeing what other schools have done. If you would like to see the problem and continue investigations at home, the link is:

Blue For a Loo Day

To raise money to sponsor a toilet in countries where sanitation needs to be improved, we completed a walk (with a bucket of 'water') in our house teams. We realised just how quickly you get tired carrying that weight and how far people have to travel to get water which is often not clean. It made us realise how lucky we are to have fresh drinking water and water to flush our toilets. 


Amazing Home Learning Projects


Our half term home learning task was to research Anderson Shelters and show our learning in any way we liked. Lots of us chose to make our own model Anderson Shelters. The pictures show a sample of these; I think you'll agree, they look fantastic!

Imperial War Museum


On Friday, Class 4 visited the Imperial War Museum, London, to enhance our learning in topic. We received a talk from two people who had experienced conflict throughout their lives. Lee had served in the army and Rose was a WW2 evacuee. Their stories were intriguing and gave us all lots to think about. After the talk, we explored the museum where we saw a range of primary sources that raised lots of questions and discussion and lots that linked to our previous learning. Highlights included experiences what it felt like to be in an Anderson shelter and in the WW1 trenches.   

NHSSP event


On Wednesday 19th October, Years 4,5 & 6 took part in the North Herts School Sports Partnership Olympic/Paralympic legacy event. The day started with all schools involved joining together for an Olympic torch relay, with a real Paralympic torch.


Then groups joined their group leaders to settle into their event for the day. These included boccia, handball, sitting volleyball, table tennis, dance and wheelchair basketball. We also had school reporters who interviewed various competitors throughout the day and a design and create activity, during which two fantastic t-shirts were made.   


The event ended with a dance performance and medal ceremonies. A great day was had by all and there were many displays of superb sportsmanship, perseverance and teamwork.
