Relative Clauses

Mrs Holt, who has been teaching for more years than she cares to remember, has been working on relative clauses with the Eagles this week. The children learned that there are six keys words to look for and that punctuation is important! It was good to see that Year 6s remembered what a main clause is from last year’s learning. Mr Major led a fun Flag NFL lesson in PE - the best part for us adults, was seeing the children self- assess their confidence throughout, making great progress from the beginning of the afternoon to the end.

Working independently

We have continued our study of The Raven by thinking about the author's use of language. We found out the difference between alliteration, assonance and sibilance, and listened to the much missed Sir Christopher Lee’s (or Count Dooku, as William better knows him) reading of the poem. It's also been our first week of getting the hang of how Maths works in Eagles class; we'll be working a lot more on becoming independent as the weeks go on. Mr Major has been setting lots of fun fitness challenges in PE and it has been good to see children trying to beat their personal best.


Welcome back!

Eagles have already had a packed week: baseline testing, PE challenges, starting our Gothic literature writing unit, investigating the artist William Morris, tasting snacks from Turkey and much more!

Big Friends met their Little Friends, the new Robins. Mrs Netting and I are very proud of how fabulously the Year 6s are looking after the little Reception children. Lots of exciting games are being led by the Big Friends!
