Welcome to Eagles!


Teacher – Miss Tedaldi and Mr Wride

TA – Mrs Day-Lewis


Homework and spellings:

We follow the read, write inc spelling scheme which involves teaching the children spelling rules and patterns. Each week, on a Monday, the children will bring home a list of words using the rule they are currently learning. They will be tested on this rule the following Monday.


Homework is given out at the start of the term and is due weekly every Friday.  Please help your child only when completely necessary. The main objective of these tasks is to encourage independence ready for Secondary school.



Children are expected to read at home at least four times a week and this should include reading out loud to an adult as well as to themselves as this is still an important skill. Reading diaries should be bought in on Monday and signed by an adult to show reading has been completed.

If they do not have 4 times written in their diary then they will lose 5 - 10 minutes of break time on a Monday reading their book inside.

It is your child’s responsibility to take their diary to and from school.



Each morning, the children complete Rainbow Maths to practise their mental maths skills. To enhance this, please practise times tables regularly with your child.



In the Autumn Term, the children go swimming on a Tuesday afternoon. They need to bring swimming kit, water bottle and a snack as well as a coat for the walk. In the Spring and Summer term the children have PE lessons on a Tuesday afternoon.



The highlight of your child’s time in Eagles is our annual trip to PGL! This takes place during the summer term and is a fantastic opportunity that should not be missed.
