Welcome to Eagles' class page!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and wishing you all a happy new year!
The children in Eagles class have begun exploring their new topic: Windrush.
In line with our new topic, we have been exploring Shaun Tan's The Arrival, which has sparked some fascinating discussions about migration. Year 6 will soon be writing their own story inspired by this powerful graphic novel and I am looking forward to seeing what they produce! Alongside this, we have been studying Catherine Bruton's No Ballet Shoes in Syria, which has helped the children to empathise with refugees and the struggles that they may face. The children have made fantastic links between the books that we are studying and our current topic.
In maths this half term, we will be exploring decimals, percentages and ratio. 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 skills every day including the 'Fast Ten' challenge, which requires the children to solve ten questions in ten minutes - although the time may be shortened at some point...
Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:
Science - Living Things and Their Habitats
RE - Judaism
PSHE - Respecting Rights
PE - Badminton
Music - Singing development and furthering knowledge of pitch and dynamics (using voices and instruments)
Art - Exploring different mediums
French - All About Me
Eagles class have had a fantastic start to this half term and are working extremely hard each and every day. We are very proud of their efforts and are looking forward to this continuing through the term.
