Welcome to Eagle Owls !
We are a mixed year five and year six class. Mrs Spibey is the class teacher who teaches us every morning and on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Ms Fielding teaches the class on Wednesday afternoons and Mrs Nowak teaches on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
We also have Mrs McCleery who works 1:1 on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, Thursday’s and Friday’s.
The Eagle Owls PE days are on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
Eagle Owls love books... On a two-year cycle we enjoy reading many books including; Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, Cogheart by Peter Bunzl, Wonder by R.J Palaceo, Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell, Viking Boy by Tony Bradman, How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, War Horse by Michael Morpurgo and Skellig by David Almond and many more exciting adventures. In Guided Reading, we work on our comprehension skills, developing our Point, Evidence, Explanation skills and we look at a lot of non-fiction and information that is relevant to the world, our topics and Science work.
In Maths we use the Power Maths scheme by Pearson to ensure we are implementing the government focus of Maths Mastery. This has helped us develop our reasoning skills in maths and allows us to learn using a range of methods. We also have daily times tables challenges from Rockstar Maths.
For an overview of all of our Topics, have a look at our medium-term planning page.
Each year we go on a class residential. We alternate between Ingleborough Hall - where we experience caving, gorge scrambling and visit a show cave - and Edinburgh City centre.
Homework is considered very important as it not only prepares children for secondary school but also gives them a responsibility. Homework is given out every Thursday and consists of Maths, Grammar and a reading activity. Homework should be returned to class by the following Tuesday.
Children receive golden time for completing three weekly reads.
We enjoy class worships in St Mary’s church on Monday mornings and look forward to VIP assemblies on Friday’s.
