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 had a fantastic tome today at Rock Up and Stanwick Lakes! We started the day challenging ourselves to climb higher, faster and harder, and did brilliantly! Mrs Campbell and Mrs Toyne were really impressed with the positive and supportive attitude of all the children, and how they tackled their own fears. 

We then went on a beautiful, woodland walk to Stanwick Lakes. We ate our lunch and then had fun on the assault course. Finally we went to the visitor centre and treated ourselves to a well-desevered ice-cream. We had a final play on the climbing equipment to finish a wonderful day of fun in the sun!

On Friday, we spent a very wet and soggy day at Hunstanton. We went to the beach and watched longshore drift in action, then looked at the sea defences. We explored how the groynes stopped the beach from moving, the sea walll stopped the wave energy and why the flood gates were important along the beach. We then examined the cliffs to see how they were being eroded and the impact of weather on the different types of geology. 

Finally, to escape the rain, we ate our lunch under the shelter and recorded all the tourist attractions and facilities we could see. After lunch and some much needed protection from the rain, we had chips and doughnuts to warm us up before our journey home. The children were fantastic and kept their spirits up, despite the torrential rain all day! A memorable trip for eveyone!

Eagle Owls had a great time in the sun, finding out about coastal erosion. We learnt about chemical erosion by acid rain; physical erosion from freeze-thaw; biological erosion from lichen, tree roots and humans; and the effects of weathering from wind and rain. 

Eagle Owls enjoyed creating some drama with West End in Schools. They learnt about who we are damaging the planet, how the planet is effected and how we can help climate change. 

 

Eagle Owls have been busy this term learning about Native American culture and beliefs. They have explored their social history, the use of the buffalo, why there were so many clashes between Native Americans and European Americans, and their faiths and beliefs. We also explored their work in Art and Design, making dream catchers and totem poles, reflecting our own beliefs. They have turned out brilliantly, and all children should be very pleased with the patience and resillience they have shown.
