Teachers: Miss Francis, Mrs Whitefield and Mr Wride with Mrs Price, TA.
Homework is given out at the start of the term and is due in weekly on a Friday. It is based around our current topic and encourages the children’s inventiveness and independence.
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.
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 week. In school, the children also learn ‘Rainbow Spellings’ and are tested on these weekly so they can work through them at their own pace. These spellings are taken from the New Curriculum year 5 and 6 spelling list which can be found below.
Each morning, the children complete Rainbow Maths to practise their mental maths skills. To enhance this, please practise times tables regularly with your child. You can find links in the KidsZone area.
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 Wednesday 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.
To see more about the Eagles class, take a look at the Eagles blog page which is updated with information about the children's learning regularly.
