Friday March 17th - Persuasive Writing Brochures - Please enjoy reading our holiday brochures; based on the fictional setting we have been reading about in Kensuke's Kingdom (Michael Morpurgo). Can you spot our use of amazing adjectives, rhetorical questions, persuasive phrases and second person/present tense.

World Book Day - Thursday 3rd March - We have loved dressing up today to celebrate World Book Day. Can you guess our books from our fabulous costumes? We also enjoyed reading with year 2 children and visiting the pop up book shop to get our own books!

1.3.2023 - Please enjoy looking at our completed moving Fairground Rides. Each group produced a fully working ride using a battery powered motor and belt and pully mechanism. We certainly developed our team work skills tremendously and thoroughly enjoyed making them!

27.2.23 - Eagles Fairground Rides - Take a look at us preparing and making our moving rides. We have followed a design brief to create a miniture fairground ride, powered by cells and including a motor, an axel and a belt and pully system. We had so much fun creating, measuring, sawing and cutting our materials.

22.2.23 - Arts Week - Dance

In our dance session, we took our inspiration from a TikTok craze! We started by learning the dance to 'Green Green Grass' by George Ezra. We then worked in small groups to add to the dance before teaching them to the rest of the class. We had lots of fun making these.... almost as much fun as Mr Williams and Mr Catling!

Tuesday 21st February - Performance Poetry. Today, Eagles have really enjoyed working in groups to perform a poem. We carefully considered our tone, pace, expressions, actions and use of instruments and dance to enhance our performances and engage the audience. Please enjoy seeing them, we loved performing!

Thursday 9th February - Please take a look at some of our Manga inspired comic strips and cartoon characters we have designed and created in our Japanese Art lessons. Can you guess which emotions we have portrayed?

Thursday 19th January - Eagles 1st performance of Benjamin Britten’s Friday Afternoons: A New Year Carol. Please enjoy our first performance, we are now going to working hard all term to develop and refine our performance of the song, before we film ourselves again to appraise and evaluate our performance.

Term 3 - DT - Friday 5th January - 3 Course Meal. We have loved being back at school since the Christmas holidays and completing our cooking project we started in December. Today we made Cheese and Onion Pinwheels and Apple and Cinnamon Crumbles. We loved peeling, chopping, weighing and measuring all of our ingredients. While we were waiting for them to cook we designed hygiene safety posters and evaluated our produce. The end product was delicious and we have learnt so many new skills.

Over the last two weeks of term, in Year 6 we have been planning and preparing our very own 3 course meals! To start our DT unit and following our design brief, we have focused on a soup starters. Planning and researching 3 recepies and recording the price per person to make. We then voted as a class (recorded results in a bar chart) which soup was most efficient to make and appealed to our target audience. The winners were Leak and Potato Soup and Carrot and Corriander Soup!, In our next lesson, we then followed our recipes to chop, peel and prepare all the ingredients independently. Please enjoy looking at our impressive pictures of all our hard work.

YEAR 6 - Biography Writing -2.12.2022. Please enjoy reading some examples of our latest published writing, all about a very courageous hero, named Harriet Tubman. We spent time researching her life achievements and then writing a biography independently. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we loved writing them!

Year 6 Science- 21.11.2022 - Making Periscopes. This week we investigated the use of periscopes and how we could make our own to prove light travels in straight lines; being reflected accurately using mirrors to spy on our friends ab0ve the table. Please ask your child to tell you all about it and what they learnt!

Year 6 Visit to Rewley Road Fire Station - Today our class took part in the Junior Citizen programme. During our visit each child experienced a safety scenario where they are taught a variety of skills and suggested ways to safely deal with a situation which could arise during daily life. The aim of each safety scenario is to allow children the opportunity of recognising and dealing with danger in a realistic way and one which they will remember, should they need to cope with a similar situation in real life. All the children were given the chance to make a 'real' 999 phone call as well as take part in a river rescue, stranger danger, animal safety, internet safety, fire safety, cycle safety, railway safety and hazards around the home. All the children responded fantastically in the situations remaining clam, sensible and really impressed all the staff with their amazing current safety knowledge and understanding - such a fantastic trip!

This week in our PSHE lessons we worked on a scenario which involved some children who had been involved in potential criminal. We held a meeting in role as either a police officer, fire officer, headteacher, teacher or parent. Please ask your child about the role they played and the suitable punishment they decided on for the offenders!

Please enjoy our work based on Peter Reynolds story ‘The Dot’. Today at Eynsham, we have been celebrating International Dot Day! We have created our own piece of artwork centred around a single dot. All of our art will be different, but it shows that everyone in our community can be included and can achieve!

Year 6 Greek Day - What an absolutely amazing day we have had,. We have learnt so many facts in the most fun and exciting with Lauren. We have even enjoyed a mini Olympics - of course Eagles were the champions and we beat the Kestrels! Our day has also included story telling, games, puzzles, a quiz, role-play and real-life artefact exploring. Please ask your child all about our incredible day!

This week in Science we started to explore our new unit of work all about Light. We were given a light source and explored on our tables 'Does light only travel in straight lines?' please ask your child to tell you what we discovered. We also explored shadows and what happens when we try to change the direction of light.
