Eagles is our mixed year 5 and year 6 class which is currently taught by Miss Glover. Please take a look at what they have been getting up recently…
Our Autumn 2 topic is “The Groovy Greeks.”

Our new text is “Who Let the Gods Out” by Maz Evans. Our fictional writing focus will be Greek mythology and our non-fiction writing outcome will be biography writing (we will link this to our Groovy Greeks topic.)

In History, we will be focusing on “The Groovy Greeks” including: Who were the ancient Greeks? Alexander the Great, Daily Life, Athens and Sparta and the Olympic Games.
Our focus this half term is “Light” including: how we see, reflecting light, refraction, seeing colours and shadows.

Linking to “The Groovy Greeks” we will be designing and making our own Greek pottery.
In our computing lessons, we will be concluding our coding unit before beginning our new unit “Web Page Creation.”
Thursdays: Functional Fitness
*Please can Eagles children come to school wearing PE kit on these days. Please take into consideration that as the months get colder, the children will need a coat/something warm to wear as our sessions will take place outdoors at school.
This will continue to take place on a Wednesday afternoon. Outdoor school PE kit and shoes need to be worn on this day please.
Our RSE topic this Autumn is based on peer pressure, consent and dealing with stress/pressure.
