Eagles

Welcome to Eagles 2021 - 2022!

We hope you enjoy looking at our learning on this page.

 

Please remember our home learning is always due in on a Thursday and will be set the following day on Google Classroom. The children should bring their reading records in on their guided reading day - this has been written on the inside cover of their reading records. Spellings are posted onto Google Classroom on a Friday and are tested on those spellings the following Friday.

 

The children should be changing their home reading books frequently, please ask if they are unsure which books they should be bringing home. It is really important that all children bring a water bottle into school and a piece of fruit for playtime.

 

Our PE days this year are Monday and Thursday - please ensure your child comes into school in PE clothes and a school jumper.  

 

Thank you!

World War Two Experience Day

 

It was fantastic that the children were able to go on a school trip after so long. They all went down to the Museum of Kent Life in Maidstone to try and experience what life was like for adults and children during the Second World War. Throughout the day the children had the opportunity to participate in a number of workshops immersing them in a variety of aspects of everyday life. The children really enjoyed the evacuee experience, learning about navigation for the RAF, the role of the Home Guard and attempting Rug Rag Making. On returning to school the children had the opportunity to share what they had learnt by creating leaflets to promote the day to other schools.

Virtual Sports Hall Athletics

 

In a similar way to last year all Key Stage 2 children had the opportunity to participate in the virtual sports hall athletics competition across Dartford. The children had to try and achieve their best in a range of disciplines that included: standing long jump, standing high jump, chest pass, speed bounce and 10m shuttle runs. All the children gradually improved as they had more attempts and were able to practice the skills required to achieve their best.

Electrifying

 

During term 1 the children have been building on their knowledge of electricity from year 4. The children had the time to revisit making circuits and drawing them using the appropriate symbols. They carried out fair test investigations including using data loggers to discover the effect of changing the voltage on the volume of a buzzer. At the end of the topic the children had the opportunity to create their own educational game that involved electronic circuits. Using the TASC approach the children designed, made and evaluated their games. Kingfishers class were invited to test the games and give their feedback on which ones they enjoyed playing the most. Each pair of children were then given a glockenspiel to compose their own advert jingle for their game. The creativity from all the children during this project combined with using their knowledge of electricity resulted in some incredible games and jingles.

Eye of the Wolf by Daniel Pennac

 

Born worlds apart: a wolf from Alaska and a boy from Africa…

 

Our writing has been based around the book Eye of the Wolf. Children have written their own narratives, rewritten parts from alternative views and created non-chronological reports about wolves. Here is what we thought of the book:

-It was really interesting finding out the different backgrounds of the characters.

-We were able to find out different points of view and see things from different character’s perspectives.

-I recommend this book because it was interesting and there was lots of action and detail.

-The story was well-developed and gave you lots of detail about the characters.

-It is really good for people who like adventure stories.
