Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Eagle Owls and our new blog!

We are the Year 5 and 6 class and we are taught by Mrs Little and Mrs Toyne with support from Mrs Mitchell and Ms Forscutt. On Tuesdays we have French with Madame Kernick, PE with Mr Tranmer and RE with Mrs Mitchell on Thursdays.

On this page you will find updates about what we have been learning as well as a space to show our curriculum documents which we use to reinforce our learning throughout the year. Please also use the links on the sidebar to access previous updates!

Eagle owls have been continuing their investigations into the effects of forces by exploring water resistance. The children had to design their own boats and predict what would happen based on their understanding of the way forces would act on the boat. Lots of learning but lots of fun too!

We've been engaging in lots of wonderful group work this week. We've worked together to discuss the features of explanations and make suggestions on improving texts. We've explored air resistance by creating our own parachutes and testing variables and predictions and our School Council and Church Council representatives have attended their first meetings. 

Children in Eagle Owls would like to share some of their wonderful homework with you. We have had a good start back and have started our new topic of 'The Amazing Americas'. We will also be getting ready for a Tag Rugby Festival later this month, learning about staying safe online, exploring how music brings us together and investigating the science of forces - we're in for a very busy half term!

 

What a great time we had today! We decided to create a new design for the hall floor. All children had to draw the shapes to scale using rulers and protractors and then try to fit them together without overlaps. We also tried to create tessellating patterns on the laptops. Finally, we broke off into our house teams and the Sycamores had a wonderful time with their Beetle Drive.

What a way to finish the term! Eagle Owls have created a wonderful mural based on the artwork of Diego Rivera and inspired by the album cover, 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' by The Beatles, we've completed our work on the Ancient Maya and we also worked with Mr T on some basic first aid skills.
