Welcome to the home of the Eagles.
We are taught on Mondays and Tuesdays by the creative Mrs Cotton-Winfield and on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays by the imaginative Mrs Ince.
Our class spans Year Four, Year Five and Year Six children so we are super busy.
For the Summer Term, we are learning about World War Two. In our Humanities lessons, we will be finding out why World War Two was started, who was involved and what was the impact for those living in this significant period of history. We will be looking at the effect of propaganda and exploring reasons why the Holocaust occurred. By the end of term, we will have learnt about some key individuals of the time such as Winston Churchill, Anne Frank and Edith Cavell.
Our science topic is Evolution and Inheritance, then states of matter. This means we will be looking at how living things have changed over time and how animals and plants have adapted to suit their environment.
Our PE dates this term are Tuesdays and Wednesdays (which is our day for badminton). Please come to school in PE kit on both of those days. Details of our PE kit can be found on the website.
We're back to learning an instrument - hurray! This term, we will be learning how to play the ukelele on Wednesday afternoons.
We love to read in Eagles and do lots of it. Our class text will be the classic 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian - a wonderful book about a young boy who is evacuated to live in the country with Mr Tom. We think the children will be moved and adore this book.
The most important homework is to read for pleasure at home. We recommend this is done at least 3 times a week and note this down in our home school diaries - children can write this in themselves.
We will by sending some topic homework to do since we find that our children enjoy getting to choose what they do, whether it be art, making a model of something related to our topic or some writing. (See homework mat below).
Spellings will also be coming home once a week, so please take time to learn these ready to be tested on a Monday.
Maths and English homework will be alternated so there is a piece every week of either maths or English grammar work to do at home.
Look out for dates of parents meetings about our residential and other exciting activities on the website or on our newsletter Burntstump Bugle.
As always, we love to hear from parents or carers, so if you'd like to get in touch via email to the firstname.lastname@example.org
by phone or in person, please do not hesitate. We're always happy to help and love to hear successes that the children have had outside of school.
Coming soon....World War Two homework mat.
