Eagles - Year 6

Autumn 2

Welcome to Eagles' class page!


Hope you all had a wonderful half term break.


The children in Eagles class have really got stuck into their new topic: Energy.


We have all been inspired by the work of Greta Thunberg and have been exploring Greta's Story: The Schoolgirl who went on Strike to Save the World. This book has been informing our reading lessons, as well as our writing lessons. We have also been exploring the work of David Attenborough in order to, ultimately, create our own non-chronological reports about climate change; detailing the impact of human activity and the steps that can be taken by of all us - as we have learned that 'no-one is too small to make a difference'.


In maths this half term, we will be exploring fractions. The children have made a fab start to this unit and we will be building on their knowledge. In addition to this, we will also be continuing to practise our arithmetic and times tables skills every day. 


Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:

Science - Electricity

RE - Judaism 

PSHE - Respecting Rights

PE - Tag rugby

Music - Singing development and furthering knowledge of pitch and dynamics (using voices and instruments)


Many children in Eagles class volunteered to become librarians and play leaders. They were all very engaged with the training they received at the start of this half term and have been working really hard to manage the library and support other children with their break times. They should be very proud of the way in which they have taken on this responsibility with a mature and thoughtful attitude - well done year 6!


We are all looking forward to what this busy and exciting half term will bring and will be sure to build on our fantastic learning so far this year.
