Welcome to Eagle Class!
Eagle Class is the home of our Year 6 children.
The class teacher is Mrs Page and our teaching assistant is Mrs Francis.
Eagle Class will have 2 sessions of PE a week this year. PE lessons will take place every Thursday and Friday afternoon. Please ensure that all items of clothing especially sweatshirts are clearly labelled. Girls should have their hair tied back, if it is long. Earrings should be removed, for health and safety. If your child is unable to take part in PE, due to physical injury, please contact the school office. Children will need to arrive at school on Wednesdays and Fridays in PE kit. For this term, children need to have an outdoor PE kit including trainers. Golden Mile sessions take place Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; children are required to have trainers in school on these days. Trainers may stay in school through the week, preferably in a plastic bag.
In Eagle Class, reading strategies are taught in the English lessons through shared and guided reading. Your child will read in a group every week and complete reading or writing activities to support this learning. As part of their homework we would like you to encourage your child to read independently at home. As your child is in Upper Key Stage 2, please try to encourage him/her to read for sustained periods of time- an average of 20 minutes, 3 times a week. It is important that the children try to read a variety of material, such as fiction, non-fiction, poetry and a range of more complex short novels. It is not always necessary for your child to read aloud to another person; discussing the book after your child has finished reading will help you to check his/her comprehension of what has been read. Please sign and date your child’s red reading record after a reading session; these will be collected on a daily basis to monitor your child’s reading. The children can then change their books as necessary.
