Nerves were high on Wednesday as the Year 6’s waited to find out what their production is. Promised an afternoon of DVD watching in Eagles classroom, the children were super excited. They did watch a DVD…… Of sorts ……
The DVD revealed to Year 6 that they would be heading to a theatre to watch their production live!
We finally arrived in Swindon to watch:
Auditions took place on Thursday and the super cast is in place and ready to ‘rock on’ after half term… Be ready people, this is one talented year group! Regular updates will be posted from rehearsals via the production crew!

Thursday saw the ‘most important vote in a generation’ we decided that voting and political debate shouldn’t just be for adults!
On Thursday morning Mrs Alvis introduced us to the election process and the main parties in worship. We looked at their policies on: education, the environment and immigration. We all listened and then discussed within our classrooms.
We voted ‘in private’ on Thursday afternoon. Our ballot boxes were stuffed and our ‘turnout’ high! The results were as shown below:
Broken down across year groups and classes:
The class and year group breakdown
And compared with national figures:
As you can see, our results are fairly evenly spread for all parties except UKIP. We think this is good, as we are young we are still scrutinising governments closely and making up our minds!
We really enjoyed the chance to ‘talk politics’ and look forward to voting at 18. (or even younger depending on the results of future elections)

This week we started our Lost World project… We have learnt about fossils and made our own Fossil Era layer cake!
We’ve learnt some difficult technical words this week and we’ve tried to remember how to spell them too!
Thanks to the lovely Mrs Clarke searching for us, we read Gigantosaurus by Jonny Duddle (He wrote one of our favourites The Pirates Next Door)
an excellent read……
This afternoon we have painted the skin of a dinosaur after discussing the importance of skin colour in nature. We also started cricket in games.
Looking forward to next week
Have a good weekend!

The Summer term is fast approaching and in Year 5/6 we have soooo much to look forward to!
A new topic shrouded in much mystery that starts at 9am Monday morning. Teachers and LSAs have been busy planning and we CANNOT wait to share it with you Eyes peeled!
The SATs are coming – now it might sound strange to be excited about these tests but here in Eagles we can’t wait to show off how clever we are! Plus the sooner they’re here, the sooner they’re over!
Rugby Tournaments – our teams are primed and ready to rock
(and my favourite….) Production! The script is edited, backing tracks have been purchased and costumes are underway! Not long til we do our ‘Big Reveal’ having seen this year group’s class worships and Christmas performance it is sure to be a phenomenal show!
Cathedral trips, transition days, language days and much much more….. We’ve been talking about sliding down that mountain and we’re nearly there!
Looking forward to seeing you all back on Monday……

During this term we have been exploring the Amazon Rainforest. We are currently in the process of creating a Rainforest within the school library. Eagles are in charge of leaves and foliage. Tomorrow we will begin creating our designs using a range of materials. Photos to follow….
In the last week we have been looking at the book ‘Short’ by Kevin Crossley-Holland’ we are going to be planning and writing our own mystery stories and are hoping to post some on here.
This is while we gear up for Christmas and our Christmas Carol Concert – The Christmas Truce!
