Wow what a week! On Monday the Eagles finished their recent DT project which included planning, designing and building a Anne Frank replica 3D model based on research carried out during previous sessions. The children were split into 3s and had to join, paint and decorate their houses using cardboard and other materials. This task had no adult support and was all completed by the children.

On Wednesday the Eagles visited Duxford where the children took part in the ‘documentary challenge’ in which they had to choose one item of interest from the exhibition and film key information about it. The questions included what it was and why it was important during the War and why it might still be important today. They also completed ‘activity trails’ whilst looking round the other hangars.

On Thursday we held an ‘evacuee day’ where the children completed ‘Home Front’ activities such as ‘Dig for Victory’ and baking using WW2 recipes. During the afternoon they also made medals using salt dough. I apologise if they arrived home a little messy!

Thank you to the Eagles for their hard work during this half term. You all deserve a restful half term.

Just one last week!

Hello,

The Eagles have been working incredibly hard this week with a real focus on maths. We have continued our unit on shape and have covered a range of mini topics such as translation, reflection, rotation and measuring angles. In Literacy we have began our work on diary writing including lessons based around grammar and particular linguistic features that need to be included in this style of writing. We will finish this unit next week with each child writing their own entry based on a WW2 experience. This unit of work ties in well with our current topic with the next series of History lessons looking at the life of Anne Frank (and her diary).

Reminders:

I will not be setting the Eagles any homework from now until at least half term as the children should be spending their ‘homework time’ revising.

 

Bikeability was great fun – Eagles

Hello!

Bikeability has been and gone – it was a fantastic experience for the Eagles with all children who participated fully comfortably passing. They will receive badges and certificates next week.

Reminders:

 

On Monday I will be away on a course and so sadly booster sessions cannot be run after school. However, these will continue on Thursday (15th March) next week.

Despite my absence on Monday, the children should still come to school in PE kit as I have still planned for a PE lesson to take place first thing.

The children have bee handed homework which they should complete and hand back in by the end of next Friday (16th).

Thanks,

Mr Piper (09.03.2018)

A ‘Brrrrrilliant’ week in the Eagles

Hello!

Another productive week for the Eagles as we continued our story writing – they are looking fantastic from what I have read so far! In Maths we finished our work on fractions, decimals and percentages including how to convert and compare between units. Finally, we continued our ‘Mountains and Volcanoes’ topic including creating some beautiful ‘flick paintings’. The Eagles also completed a research task using iPads and Atlases to find where some famous volcanoes are located.

Reminders:

From Monday to Thursday (5th-9th March) the Eagles will take part in ‘Bike-ability’. Hence, they will not be taking part in PE on Monday and should not come to school in PE kit. The children should bring their bikes on the Monday and are able to leave buy xanax cod delivery them overnight each day until Thursday. Their bikes will be securely stored in the Eagles classroom should you want to leave them.

Also, homework was handed out on Friday and needs to be handed back in by Friday (9th March). The children have been given either a maths or reading based task.

At this moment I am planning for SATs boosters to continue after school on Monday (5th March); weather dependent. Should this change I will put a post on the website and school Facebook page. We will continue with our work on maths and will either look at Arithmetic questions or problem solving activities.

Enjoy your weekend,

Mr Piper (2nd March)

Another busy week

Hello!

Another productive week for the Eagles with some exceptional art work and pieces of writing being completed. In Literacy we started work on play scripts including the children acting and performing scripts before writing continuations based on a given text. In Maths we have started work on ‘measurement and conversion’ and have covered a range of metric units. First, we measured the height of animals using mm and cm before moving on to distances and measuring between cm and m and lastly m to km. In science we have continued our work on adaptations and food chains and will continue with this during science next week.

This week, homework will be handed out on Monday (29th January) in purple books. This will need to be handed back in before Monday 5th February so that we can go through the answers before half term.

PE will be on Monday so the children should come to school in PE kits.

Enjoy your weekend!
