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 Mrs Carrino.   Mr Charley is an experienced teacher who has a passion for Maths and Computing.

Last week, of of the children visited St David’s Church in Ashprington. We learnt about how to play the organ and found out about the history of the building. We also created decorations for the Christmas tree and Kestrels and Eagles were treated to a re-enactment of a typical Tudor wedding. Many thanks to the ‘Open The Book’ team at Ashprington for providing such a memorable day.

Last Thursday, Eagles took part in a day of WW2 workshops in Diptford which included code-breaking, handling artefacts, guessing who the spy was, rationing, morse code and learning more about the Home Front.

Eagles class performed their WW2 dance routines to the rest of the school. They developed the routines over four weeks.

Eagles class have been working with Mr Tanner to develop gymnastic routines in groups. They also spent time attempting adventurous balances including this very impressive one!

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!
