Tangrams are usually cut up and made into lots of other shapes, but not in Eagles class. We investigated the propertions of the different shapes compared to the whole, thinking about fractions, decimals and percentages. Some children worked out that if you added all the parts together the answer should be equal to 1, or 100%.
Headed in the direction of Spoonley Wood, Eagles embarked on a 5 mile circular walk to visit the site of a Roman Villa and mosaic floor. On our way we passed Almsbury Lodge, Sudeley Castle and Waterhatch Farm. We even managed to uncover a few geocaches! As an end of term treat, Eagles also spent some time enjoying the fantastic playground at Sudeley Castle.
Eagles have been working hard to research all things Roman. So far, our new topic has taught us all about mosaics, Romulus and Remus, Boudicca's rebellion and the different systems of Roman rule.
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?
