Welcome to the home of the Eagles.
We are taught on Mondays and Tuesdays by the amazing Mrs Annable 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 Spring Term, we are learning about Space travel. In our Humanities lessons, we will be finding out who won the Space Race and what was the prize; covering about the history of space travel and the rivalry between the US and the USSR. We will be finding out about key individuals from Yuri Gagarin to Elon Musk along the way.
Our science topic is Space. This means we will be doing lots of research into facts about the planets, their distances from Earth and information about the Moon.
Our PE dates this term are Wednesdays (which is our day for dance) and Fridays, where some of us will complete our 25 metre award in swimming whilst the rest of us practise gymnastics. Please come to school in PE kit on both of those days. Details of our PE kit can be found on the website.
We love to read in Eagles and do lots of it. Our class text will be 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrill-Boyce - a hilarious book about a regular boy who finds himself on a space shuttle orbiting Earth.
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 evenings 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.
