In Art and Design we will be weaving in the style of the Vikings and after half term we will design and make a longboat in DT.

Autumn Term 2
What an amazing first half term we had to our World War II topic! Our 'Brington Anderson Shelter' project is almost complete with just one or two more sessions to go. Our first novel study 'Letters from the Lighthouse' had us on tenterhooks as we got towards the end and finished on the last day of half term. I have never seen a class so keen to listen to a story!
The success of our tag rugby team was the icing on the cake of a brilliant start for Eagles Class this academic year.
We will continue this topic this half term and start to explore the home front, the D Day landings and the end of World War II.
Our PE days will change this half term so pupils need to come into school in their PE kits on Mondays and Wednesdays. We are having a go at a new sport later in the half-term. Mrs Johnson is quite excited!
