Welcome to Eagles 2023-2024

Welcome to term 4!

For the first 2 weeks, swimming continues to be each Tuesday for some pupils while the rest of the class have gymnastics at the same time.

We will inform you of any changes in PE days for the remainder of the term by week 2.

There are many exciting opportunities taking place this term!

PGL will be a highlight and we're very excited about all the adventurous activities which we will experience!

The whole school Science Fair is a fantastic opportunity for all pupils to investigate any aspect of science and to have a go at thinking and working like scientists. We look forward to seeing their projects later in March.

Scroll down for details of terms 1, 2 and 3.

The timetable will stay the same as term 3 for the first 2 weeks.

The Year 6 Team is:

Mrs Young, Mrs Skuse and Mrs Bell.

TERM 1 Photos - see below

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 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 Photos - see below

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.
