Eagle (Year 6)

​​​​​​

Our question for Term 1 is:

Why do we have to leave? 

Virtual Harvest Assembly

This week Eagle Class would like to share with you what they are thankful for at Harvest Time. 

The children have also worked hard in their art lessons to develop their mastery of watercolour painting to create food landscapes - or "foodscapes" - in the style if British Artist Carl Warner.

Forest School - Backhouse Woods

The philosophy of Forest School was based upon a desire to provide children with an education that encouraged appreciation of the natural world, and that would encourage a responsibility for nature conservation in later life. This term in our Forest School sessions, we have created "offerings" to give back to the forest as a way of showing our appreciation for nature and all that it provides us with. 

Virtual Celebration Assembly

This week Eagle Class would like to share with you some of their learning from our topic

'Why do we have to leave?'

The children have worked hard in their art lessons to develop their mastery of watercolour painting to create Blitz skyline silhouettes. They have also become recording artists by performing part of a spoken rap to retell the key events of WWII.

Both myself and Miss Penfold are incredibly impressed with how focused and determined to succeed all the children have been since their returned to school and we are proud of all they have achieved so far. - Mr Clarke :)

Dig for Victory

As part of our work on WWII, Eagle Class have been learning about the war's impact on the daily lives of civilians in the UK. We discussed the 'Dig for Victory' government campaign and how people transformed their gardens into vegetable patches when food was in short supply.

DT - Cooking Woolton Pie

As part of our topic on WWII, Eagle Class have cooked a dish from wartime UK: Woolton Pie. This was a popular vegetable hotpot which used ingredients that could be grown in people's gardens when food supplies were running low. The class developed their ability to prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques as well as  understand seasonality, and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown.
In our Art lessons, Eagle Class have continued to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design

RE - Islamic and Christian Artwork

In RE, Eagle Class have been reflecting on how Islamic and Christian artwork is used as part of religion as an expression of faith. In groups, the class learned to appreciate a variety of religious art by reflecting on which works of art they admired, which works invoked emotion and which works they felt were an expression of faith.
