Welcome to Eagles
Eagles class is home to years 5 and 6 where we deliver an exciting and challenging curriculum and place emphasis on children having engagement in their learning. The class has developed our Forest School Area for the whole school to use and our children enjoy regular sessions outdoors which supports their learning in many of the curriculum areas.
Eagles are taught by Mr Charley, supported by Ms Wright. Mr Charley is an experienced teacher who has a passion for Maths and Computing. Ms Wright is also Forest School Lead at Harbertonford and other schools in The Link Academy Trust.

Eagles recently took a step back in time to the Victorian era when they visited Morwellham Quay. It was a great experience of the life of Victorian children. Our hands-on workshops included rope-making, stone-breaking and a handwriting lesson in a Victorian school. We also boarded the mine train and travelled underground into a disused copper mine. It was fascinating but a little unnerving following the dark narrow tunnel through the hillside. The class represented the school in a sensible and respectful way.
The Eagles have landed!
Eagles class have arrived home from their residential trip. They stayed at East Soar Farm near Salcombe and camped in Tipees. It was a brilliant time! Our activities included a nature walk, crabbing, beach games, rounders, feeding farm animals, den-building, tying knots, roasting marshmallows on campfire, pond dipping, hill rolling and a boat trip. The children had a great time and were a credit to the school with their respect, resilience and positivity shown. I’m sure they will sleep well tonight!
Eagles began their Victorians topic by comparing children’s games and toys from Victorian times with modern games and technology. We then played Victorian street games in the playground including hopscotch, leapfrog, skipping and hoop-rolling. It was a lot of fun and the children were very creative with the basic equipment to create new or adapted games.
