Around the World in Eighty Days

It's been a very busy week in Eagles class! We had our first Assembly in 18 months - Year 6 were pleased to be able to continue the tradition of sitting on benches. It was so lovely to see the whole school together.  

We started our learning with an Eagles heptathlon on the field: a sprint, a distance run, javelin, relay, distance relay, standing long jump and a 'freestyle' event, in which the Eagles made excellent use of ribbons, hoops and hurdles. It was an incredibly fun morning with lots of good sportsmanship on display.

The beginning of the week saw the children undertaking some baseline testing - they did very well and showed super resilience. They're shaping up to be a class who give everything their best effort, which is lovely for Mr Major and me to discover. 

We've also started our topic 'Around the World in 80 Days' - some of the Eagles were horrified to find out that Queen Victoria married her cousin, Albert!
