American Football

It’s been an action packed week in Eagles! On Monday we tried our hand at some flag American
Football which was very much enjoyed by everyone. English has seen us get stuck into a new book
‘Black Powder’ set in England in 1605.
We have been working on our problem solving skills in maths and studying frontiersman Daniel Boone
and his discovery of the Cumberland Gap.

Market Research

The busy weeks continue! We've trialled a new Maths system, designed fantasy maps in English and
visited the Kingfishers to find out about their cuddly toy preferences. Our visit from Life Education
was fantastic, as always - thank you to FOGS who fully funded the visits to all the classes.

Tangrams

This week we've investigated fractions using tangrams in Maths and started thinking about diary
entries in English. In DT the children have been very excited to start to design their cuddly aliens:
we were inspired by Handymartian's Illustrated Aliens on tumblr
(https://illustratedaliens.tumblr.com/)

Netball Festival

Our Katherine Johnson biographies have been completed - we've been inspired by the way she
overcame society's prejudices to become such an incredible mathematician. As it's the last week of
term, we also had an exciting round of Gecko Maths on Thursday.
