Eagle Class

Welcome to Term 1 

We have taken the decision to change our usual class-based topics for this term and instead, in light of Coronavirus, are devoting the term to the core principles of:

Developing wellbeing – emotionally, physically and mentally

Enabling children to have time to make sense of the impact of the Coronavirus on the world around them with high quality PSHE lessons

Giving all children the opportunity to fill any gaps in core learning from the period of time when schools were closed  as well as teach the new core learning for the new year group

 Enhancing creativity through high quality art activities

Each class teacher has carefully mapped individual class topics for this term which build on these themes. We aim to resume the usual wider curriculum topics in term 2

 Home learning opportunities

Additional resources for learning spellings including key spelling patterns and lists

Reading – recommended reading books to share at home

Maths ideas for activities to do at home

You also captured the worrying emotions he must have felt whilst travelling away from his country - Great stuff! Today we are asking you to plan and write your very own refugee story.
