A very warm welcome to parents, carers and children in Eagle Class 2022-23. I’m looking forward to seeing you on Monday morning. Throughout the year I will be uploading photos of what we have been up to in school for you to share in our learning journey together. ~Miss Ashby
Here is a small selection of photos from our trip to WWT Slimbridge. We really enjoyed the pond dipping.
Here are some examples of our artwork this afternoon, which were inspired by British photographer Stephen Mcmennamy.
We had a brilliant day today making Viking bread. The recipe, for those who want to make it again, can be found here. We used wholemeal rye bread.
Here is a selection of photos from our Jubilee Hat Parade this morning.
Today, we had fun in our hockey lesson with Mrs Stock.
This week, we have enjoyed building our own Lego models and programming them to move using LegoWeDo. Our first model was a drumming monkey. I wonder what we will make next.
Today, we had a wonderful afternoon meeting our pen pals in Dove class. They read their books to us and we taught them how to make a paper aeroplance. Then we all had some fun outside testing our new planes!

Safer Internet Day 8th February
On Tuesday 8th February 2022, we spent the afternoon considering how to stay safe online. Safer Internet Day UK have provided lots of excellent resources for teachers and parents and carers to help support conversations about staying safe online. On Tuesday, we watched their virtual assembly which you can watch again here https://player.vimeo.com/video/671951508?h=1ed3a799a6%20 and then followed the lesson plan and slides which you can find on our Teams page. Eagle Class were very knowledgeable about online gaming and had lots of super tips for staying safe. Do ask our class what they know – you might be surprised!
We’d like to share lots of our artwork with you. Our classroom is looking amazing! We’ve been busy with painting, tearing paper mountains and forming paper into lots of 3D items. Today, we made Chinese lanterns and found out a bit about Chinese New Year on 1st February.
Here are some of the art pieces on display in our classroom.
Welcome to a new term in Eagle Class. It’s brilliant to be back in school with our friends after Christmas. Today, we really enjoyed reading recipes and scaling up the ingredients for different numbers of people. Perhaps you could do this at home with recipes you are making.
We have also finished our salt dough cross-sections of the Earth’s layers. We can’t bring them home yet as they haven’t fully dried but here’s a sneak preview.
We had a lovely trip to Caerleon today.
30th November – Hockey
Apologies for the wait for our next post. Today we enjoyed hockey despite the drizzle.
5th November – Roman shields
Miss Ashby is so chuffed with our amazing Roman shields. They look amazing on the display in our classroom.
Also, we have some photos from cooking week last term which Miss Ashby forgot to share! Here we are making Pesto Pasta.
22nd October – Folly Farm
Here is a small selection of the photos from the Y4 trip to Folly Farm.
We are loving our Thursday dance sessions. Already, in just 4 weeks, we have learnt and remembered the first part of our dance.
In athletics we had fun measuring our standing long jumps in the playground. Miss Ashby thought her class had turned into frogs!
This week we did a science experiment where we melted coloured ice cubes. The blue and yellow ice cubes melted into green water!

Congratulations to Keaton for winning the KS2 writing champion this week. I love his use of expanded noun phrases, senses and similes to describe a setting for a story. You can really imagine being there. Here is his writing:
A very warm welcome to Eagle Class 2021 and our parents and carers. This term in science we are investigating solids, liquids and gases. Last Wednesday, we enjoyed looking at various different things and trying to decide whether to classify them as solids or liquids.
