Eagles have created some fantastic shoe box biomes. Biomes are regions of the world with similar climates, animals and plants. They are classified in various ways. See if you can decide which category the following biomes belong to. Aquatic, Desert, Forest, Grassland or Tundra?
With many children away at the Newlands tag rugby tournament, Eagles and Owls classes combined for the day. The children watched a video about the Easter story, told using Lego, then created their own scenes from the story using Mrs Holt's children's Lego. It was fascinating to see them decide what they wanted to do, and hear their ideas and thoughts.
Eagles have been taking part in somesessions with Miss Cornish. These lessons offer a way to open up our learning through enquiry and the exploration of ideas. Our most recent discussion involved sharing our opinions on the prospect of robot teachers! Mrs Jackson was pleased (and a little relieved) to hear the children talk about the value that they placed on 'human' teachers over robotic ones.
Eagles celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a diverse range of characters. There was Harry with his bucket of dinosaurs, James with his giant peach and the Little Match Girl with her box of matches. TinTin came complete with Snowy, Bellatrix looked suitably commanding and Dorothy Gale had silver shoes just like in the original book. Other characters included Tigger (x2), Dick (the Famous Five) and Pippi Longstocking. Mrs Holt and Molly both dressed up as the Queen of Hearts, Mr Major was Dr Alan Grant of Jurassic Park fame while Mrs Jackson was Little Red Riding Hood.
