Below are the statutory spelling lists for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. It is very important that you practise these often!

Spelling Lists Year 3/4

Spelling Lists Year 5/6

Term 1: 

We started the term by creating self-portraits in the style of Chuck Close. You'll be able to see these at the Art and DT exhibition at the end of term 2. They are fantastic!

The class have spent term 1 exploring the commitment shown in the Islamic faith. There have been many reflective discussions using the Five Pillars of Islam as the key focus.


Term 2:

Term 2 has flown by! So much wonderful work has been produced by Eagles. Here are just a small number of photos of the excellent puppets made. We know many of you were able to join us at the art and DT exhibition at the end of term 2 and could see how creative the pupils had been.

The Remembrance Wreath was an important part of term 2 as we remembered those in conflict now and in the past.

Eagles were able to enjoy their last Forest School sessions with Mrs Hill and developed a range of skills each Tuesday.

Term 3:

Although being very short, term 3 was filled to the brim! Here are just a few highlights.

We welcomed Wendy, from The Bridge, who really helped with understanding the Kingdom of God. The pupils explored what makes a good and bad ruler and linked this to Jesus and Christians today.

Mrs Bell created a very informative book corner. She introduced the class to 'The Week' and has copied many articles, helping to develop knowledge about current affairs within the UK and worldwide. The pupils do read these when we have our independent reading times in class.

Two police officers visited year 6 to give a very useful talk about cyber safety. The children listened and contributed thoughtfully. We hope they will take this understanding forward as they use their different devices and will remain safe.

Term 4:

Once again, this term has really flown by! We wish everyone in Eagles, a happy Easter and hope you all have a relaxing break!

Term 4 has been full of many fantastic opportunities and we know it's been very busy for the pupils. They have had a wonderful term.

PGL was a highlight with everyone trying out new things, some of us overcoming fears and overall, enjoying themselves the entire time!

Thank you to the pupils for investigating and producing their science projects. These were of a very high standard; Mrs Pearce and Mr Richards were very impressed by them all.


Term 5:

Eagles reflected the value of perseverance: working with determination and doing their best throughout the term.

We started dance lessons for our summer performance, led by the inspirational Hatti Dawson from Panthera Dance Studios.

The term ended with a great morning of creating tie-dye t-shirts - they looked fantastic!

Term 6:
