Our wonderful Eagles at PGL!

We are so proud of the achievements from every class member on our annual residential. We hope everyone has many happy memories from our time away.

Term 4  2022-23

Our PGL trip has been a highlight of term 4. We hope you've all enjoyed the photos on the learn platform - many funny moments, exciting ones and ones where fears were overcome! A great trip - thank you Eagles.

Eagles used some fantastic figurative language when they wrote rhyming verse at the start of the term. Have a read of some of the poems in the photos above. 

World Book Day is an inspiration for us all! We shared some great books which we're reading and tried to guess the book from our homemade creations! It was a lot of fun!

There's more to follow this term:  creating our homemade switches, writing a film review of Holes! Just a few of our highlights this term!

Term 3

The end of a great term! Well done and thank you, Eagles, for all your hard work!

Enjoy looking at the graffiti tags below - they are bright and colourful! Graffiti has been an inspirational topic for writing and art this term.

We hope all of Eagles and their families have a relaxing and happy half-term!

See you back in school on Monday 20th February.

Please go to learn platform for PGL kit list details.

Term 3

Eagles have had a hard-working start to term 3. As we knew you would,

you are all doing your very best in your learning. 

We've started a new gallery of photos above for the next two terms. The Picasso style portraits using oil pastels look stunning as they surround the door to our class. Eagles are are such a creative group. Well done!

It's the start of the countdown to our PGL residential trip in March - very exciting to to be planning this!

Our timetable for term 3 has now been added - please see below.

Homework has now started again, first set due Monday 9th January.

Term 2

Eagles have settled into term 2 extremely well and have been working very hard in all their learning. They have written some entertaining informal style blogs, made progress with fractions, sewn using a variety of stitches and are now currently loving their Forest School afternoon. 

The puppets are finally made! They are brilliant! Parents, you are invited to see them at our Art and Design exhibition in the last week of term. Above are just a few for you to see now. Eagles should feel very proud of their sewing achievements.

Please take a look at the wonderful poppies they all made for Remembrance Day: they worked in small groups to produce a poppy of the highest standard. We spent time reflecting on those who have given service over the years for our country and it is clear the children regard this as a very important event in our calendar.

Term 1

Eagles worked very hard this term always doing their best. The diversity of learning ensured everyone could find something they particularly enjoyed: from learning outside in science to starting to plan and design a puppet in DT for a performance to younger pupils later in term 2! More photos will of term 1 will be added very soon.

Year 6 are very talented artists and we know they love their art lessons! Take a look at the display of the self-portraits (above) which the pupils have just finished - they are brilliant! Why not ask your child which artist's style we were using to complete these.
