Eagles in action!

Summer Term 2021


Year 6 Peer Mentors

We are currently looking at the amazing life and work of Harriet Tubman. In order that we had a good grounding in the subject, we have spent the first two weeks researching slavery in America and the North Atlantic Slave Trade. We produced some posters explaing different aspects of this disgusting episode in history.

Slavery Posters

We are currently looking at area in maths and had a fun couple of sessions working out the exact area of the classroom.

Area Investigation

In art, we have been exploring ‘Street Art’ and looking at the work of famous artists including Banksy. Ou work is beginning to come together.

 Spring Term 2021

Spring Week 11

It’s been another busy week in the Eagles. We have been working on an important piece of writing to round-off our work on Twist of Gold. We have also been putting down all our learning on our spring topic onto a mind-map. |In DT we have been finishing off our wagons. We have finished reading our class book – Twist of Gold and Mr Stowers managed to hold it together and not cry!!

We had a lovely Easter reflection session with Mrs Welch and an Easter egg hunt.

Spring Week 10

Eagles have continued to work super hard! We have been doing some assessments to see where we are all at and to help plan learning for the summer term. Everyone has done really well! We have also been working hard on our topic work and are just coming to the finale of Twist of Gold. 

We have also been working hard on our DT project – our Oregon Trail wagons. Here are a few pics:

As a bit of fun, we’ve been trying to see how many places Bruce Springsteen mentions in this live performance of Light of Day and put them on a map. See how many you can hear, you need to listen carefully at about 4:08 …

Spring Week 9

We are back!!!

It’s been a busy first week back. Everyone has been working really hard and we have covered a lot of work. We have had a complete review of our arithmetic and begun some assessments to see where everyone is at. We are continuing with our topic work and have been looking at the reintroduction of wolves and trophic cascade in Yellowstone National Park as part of our work on ecology. There’s a good video about it here:

We’ve also been having fun with US states (we managed to name and place them all on a map in double-quick time and some of us know all the state capitals too) and we are starting our new DT project.

On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a book character; here’s some pics:

Well done – the excellent work keeps coming. If you can, email  it to me on the Eagles account. I am in the process of sorting how to put anything you have posted to Tapestry on here, but for the time being it is easier if you use email.

Also lovely to see a bit of sibling support – especially when it is a former Alpington star!
