Team Eagle (Y5/6)

Welcome to Eagles Class

Welcome back to a new school year! Miss Orrell and Miss Holland are looking forward to a fantastic year in Team Eagles. Keep checking our class page to see all of the new things we are learning about. 

Spring Learning

Our topic for this half term is 'Antarctic Exploration' and we have begun by looking at Ernest Shackleton, his recruitment for his expedition, and his ship, 'The Endurance', which he used to take him and his crew to Antarctica. We will be following Shackleton on his journey, linking our learning to writing in English and also Geography.

Our class novel for this half term is 'The Polar Bear Explorer's Club'.

In Maths, we are continuing to use Effective Maths. Both Year 5 and 6 will be covering Geometry, Money and Decimals, Percentages and also recapping Place Value and Multiplication and Division. 

Our Science topic is called 'Living Things and their Habitats'. We will be discussing the life cycles of plants and animals, and looking at how their cells enable them to reproduce. Following this, we will also be learning about classification and the Linnaean system.
