I hope you've had a lovely half term and enjoyed the sun! From now on, due to Year 6s being in school, all Year 5 learning will be on the newly named Year 5 blog (on the blogging pages). The Year 6s now have a Year 6 at home blog also. I hope this is helpful as everything will now be in one place!
We are looking forward to catching up with you all during the first week back.

Dear Children and Parents,
We have decided to set you some extra fun challenges which you may wish to complete at any time during the next few weeks. The idea of these challenges is to encourage creativity and social interaction (at a safe social distance of course) to look after our 5 steps to wellbeing.
Be Active challenges:
We hope this helps you come up with some more ideas of what to do at home during this difficult time. We would love see what you manage to do so keep sending in the lovely photos.

Topic 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 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 brought 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.
In the Autumn Term, the children go 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 on a Tuesday afternoon.
Every term we create a knowledge organiser which contains all of the key facts that the children need to know for science and humanities. This term our topic is Walk Like an Egyptian. Please see below for the knowledge organiser.
The highlight of your child’s time in Eagles is our annual trip to ! This takes place during the summer term and is a fantastic opportunity that should not be missed.
To see more about the Eagles class, look at the Eagles blog page which is updated with information about the children's learning regularly.
