Eagles in action!

Autumn Term 2021

Welcome to the ‘Eagles in Action’ page. Here’s what we have been up to!

We are back!!

Castle Museum Trip

We had an exellent trip to the Castle Musuem to complement our learning on the ancient Egyptians. We found out about mummification, the ordinary life of the ancient Egyptians, looked at real ancient Egyptian aretfacts (some were 4000 years old!) and made a necklace in an Egyptian style. We also thought about the ethics of opening tombs and removing their contents. It was great fun and really interesting and we were perfectly behaved!


We also went to visit Dippy at the Cathedral. This informed our work on dinosaurs and evolution. It was fascinating and seeing Dippy was amazing, all 24 metres of him or her (that’s three buses long!). We also had time for some sketching in the Cathedral Close.

Cluster Football

Over the last 3 weeks, we have taken part in the cluster football tournament at Hobart. We played really well and really worked as a team!

We have been learning about the history of everything!

On our time line 1 year was 1 cm. We started in 2021 on the playground outside our classroom. Jack was representing the first settlement on the Nile (6500 BC) and was standing in the carpark.  To get to the Big Bang we calculated that we would have to travel 3 times tound the world!

Choir has restarted on Friday mornings with Mrs Cork

We had our first PE lesson of the year with Mr Colbeck
