Eagles - Year 6

Autumn 1

Welcome to Eagles' class page!


The children in Eagles class have had a very busy start to the year exploring our first topic: Ancient Egypt. 


In our writing lessons, we have begun by exploring a fantastic piece of historical fiction - Secrets of  a Sun King written by Emma Carroll. We will be producing a diary in the role of a character from the book and writing a balanced argument based on the question: Should Howard Carter have opened Tutankhamun's tomb? After our highly anticipated residential, the children will be exploring Rooftoppers written by Katherine Rundell in order to produce a survival guide. To end the first half term, we will be exploring the very popular Holes by Louis Sachar; writing a character description and a formal letter. 


We have begun our reading lessons by exploring The Boy, The Bird and The Coffin Maker - which the children have really enjoyed so far. Our next book is another by Louis Sachar named There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom. Throughout all of our reading lessons, we will be focusing on using our VIPERs reading skills. These skills are vocabulary, inference, prediction, explain, retrieve and summarise. 


In maths this half term, we will be exploring place value and the four operations. Children will be building on the knowledge they have gained so far in their learning. 


Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:

Science - Light

Computing - Online safety

RE - Judaism 

PSHE - Thinking Positive

PE - Football

Music - Body percussion and rhythm 


The children have made a fantastic start to Year 6 and we are all looking forward to the year ahead.
