Saints Football Tournament Thursday 23rd February
On Thursday, 8 Year 6 children attended a football tournament at Goals Soccer in Southampton which was being run by Saints.
We played five 10 minute games across the space of the day against five different schools.
We faced some tough competition but we worked well as a team and had a wonderful day.
On Tuesday 6th December, 9 children from Eagles represented our school at a federation Football Tournament. We showed amazing teamwork skills and showed exemplary sportsmanship, ensuring that we thanked the other teams and complimented them on their hard work.
We even came 2nd out of 7 schools! We would like to thank Ed for his amazing support and encouragement to be able to play as well as we did.
On Friday 11th November, we went and stood by the monument to pay our respects to the soldiers who have given their lives and those who are still working to defend our country. We sang a beautiful rendition of 'In Flanders Field' led by the marvellous Mrs Cartwright.
Some children in Wren class shared some wonderful poems with us based on the importance and symbolism of the poppy. Their poems are in this collection of images.
We have created a whole school art project based on poppies which will be on display.
We started our writing journey of The Three Little Pigs this week, with a bit of drama! We roleplayed the old tale in class with some great performances! This then helped us to see how The Guardian had interpreted the story of the Three Little Pigs differently in their award-winning advert. Ask us about it, we'd love to tell you: there's a dramatic twist!
Mrs Cartwright's Art Club Exhibition
The children who have been attending Mrs Cartwright's art club held their art exhibition on Wednesday 19th October. They loved showing around their parents and carers and talking about the different techniques they used to create their art work.
They created some truly amazing imaginative pieces!
We have put up some of the incredible artwork produced in relation to our learning journey. We were influenced by photographs from the blitz to produce artwork with varied tone and shadow. Feel free to come in to see!
While our PE focus in Autumn half-term was hockey, we decided to have a discussion about the importance of mindfulness and how looking after our bodies can make us feel good. We did this during a session of yoga! There was some serious stretching involved, and it was a lot of fun.
We have also been celebrating diversity in our worship. We looked and the varied backgrounds in our class and the community tied to us. We also chose to focus on neurodiversity, and discussed how we all work differently and that's worth celebrating!
