Eagles - Year 6

September 2020 - Autumn Term 1

Welcome to Eagles' class page!


We have been extremely impressed with the way in which Eagles class have begun their time in Year 6. The children have quickly readjusted to school life and have made a fantastic start embedding our school’s routines and expectations.


Our topic for this half term is Ancient Egypt.


In line with our new topic, we have been exploring Emma Carroll’s Secrets of a Sun King, which is a historical fiction text. It retells the story of King Tutankhamun’s discovery – with a few added details for suspense. This text will inspire the children’s first piece of writing, in which they are to write in role as a character from the book. They will also be writing a discussion text based on whether Tutankhamun’s resting place should have been disturbed and I’m really excited to hear their thoughts on this. In our reading lessons, we have been looking at The Boy, The Bird and The Coffin Maker, which has sparked fascinating and profound discussions. The children have really showcased their inference skills already and we are all really looking forward to tackling many more books this year.


In maths this half term, we will be exploring place value and the four operations. The children have shown that they have a good foundation in these topics so they will be refining their skills to ensure confidence and efficiency. In addition to this, we also practise our arithmetic skills and times tables every day. Each week, the children have a focus objective, which is taught and practised throughout the week.


Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:


SPaG – Punctuation basics, synonyms and antonyms

Science - Light

RE - Judaism 

PSHE – Positive Thinking

PE - Fitness

Art – Exploring artists

French - All About Me

Computing – Online Safety


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.
