Eagle (Year 6)

Our question for Term 1 is:

Why do we have to leave? 

Music - Victory Song

Victory Song

While learning about WWII, Eagle Class have learnt a Victory Song which retells some of the key events of the war from the start all the way up to D-day and victory in Europe. Some of the class have played accompanying drums to help us all keep to the steady rhythm of the song.

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.

Remembering Queen Elizabeth II

As a way of remembering Queen Elizabeth II, Eagle Class have spent time today writing acrostic poems about her, what she was like as a monarch and who she was as a person. Working together as a class, the children created a bank of words that describe Queen Elizabeth II and rehearsed turning them into acrostic poem lines before writing their final draft. The class have also used their research skills to begin finding out about our new monarch, King Charles III.

PSHE - Have you filled a bucket today?

This week Eagle Class have reflected about our whole school question “Have you filled a bucket today?” This concept comes from a story by Carol McCloud and teaches that everybody carries an invisible bucket to hold all their good thoughts and good feelings about themselves. Having a full bucket makes you feel good about yourself, while having an empty bucket leaves you with uncomfortable feelings. We have reflected about the difference between choosing to fill a bucket – by doing kind things for others – and choosing to dip a bucket – by acting in a mean or hurtful way. Eagle Class have reflected on the importance of kind actions in their community, and the good feelings fostered by bucket filling.
