Class Photographs 2020 - 2021
8/6/2021 - We had an amazing PE lesson today, playing rounders with Miss Naylor. Each team demonstrated excellent teamwork and great communication, shouting for the ball when they could predict being able to tap someone out on their post. Batting, bowling and fielding skills were fantastic and I was extremely proud that everyone remained positive and continued to cheer on their team, even when they had been caught or tapped out. What a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon! Well done lovely Eagles!

Co-Jo Mission: ‘99% of success is built on failure.’ The team’s new found building skills have been noticed by some of the world’s greatest architects in France, where the Eiffel tower has just been completed. In this mission, teams must build their own freestanding super-tower to rival this great European building.

8/10/2020 - Self and peer editing
I have been really impressed this week with the Year 6 work in English. We have planned a persuasive letter to Harvey, one of our book characters, to convince him to believe in the power of Origami Yoda. The children have planned, written and edited their own and each other's work, making sure it gets better and better each time. Everyone has shown great communication skills, teamwork and lots of care to help each other make more and more progress in their work - well done Year 6!!
9/9/2020 British Values - Democracy
Today we discussed the meaning of the word democracy: the right for all of us to have our voices heard and contribute our opinions in order to make a collective decision. Well done Eagles for showing such maturity today with your thoughtful consideration when voting for our School Council members and Anti-Bullying representative. I was extremely impressed with the number of people who put themselves forward for the positions, showing that you really care about our school community and want to make a positive contribution. The winners will be revealed before the end of the week, so watch this space!
We had a fabulous first Geography lesson today, learning about Bear Grylls and Sir Ranulph Fiennes. We learnt that they have both broken world records so we attempted to break the world record for the longest long jump, currently held by Mike Powell, who jumped a whopping 8.95m in 1991! Sadly, none of us came anywhere near but we had a fabulous time trying! In the words of Sir Ranulph Fiennes though, we learnt that 'The key is to learn from your failures and then keep going!' which is the resilience character trait that we have been learning about. We also learnt the importance of teamwork during dangerous expeditions, being safe in the knowledge that you can rely on your team to stay together and never let you down. We tried sprinting to see if we could all keep up, then tried jogging to prove the truth in the our first Co-Jo mission title' If you go fast, you should go alone. If you want to go far, you should go together.'
Eagles class showed some fabulous teamwork skills, working in groups to write, then perform and film their own mini documentaries about how mountains are formed.
We have all really enjoyed Athletics with Miss Naylor this half term. Well done to Lucas for achieving an 'ICP Sport Star' award!
Let's Do The Twist!
While reading our book 'The Strange Case of Origami Yoda', we discovered that most of the children had no idea what 'The Twist' was! They certainly do now, even if some were too reserved to join in!
Design Technology - Spring Rolls (yummy!!)
The children have really looked forward to working with Mrs Grundy every Wednesday afternoon. This week they made some very professional looking Spring Rolls that were absolutely delicious, so I'm told. Can you believe, not one of them thought to save poor old Mrs Mee one of their wonderful creations!
5.10.2020 - Geography
Eagles had great fun cutting and drawing around potatoes! We were in fact learning about how the height of land is shown on a map using contour lines.
