Toga Day 
 
Today we have enjoyed kick starting our topic on Ancient Greece. As well as dressing in togas, we have heard the ancient myth of Medusa and completed some art work, which the children have thoroughly enjoyed doing. We have attempted some Zorba dancing and made and tasted Tzatziki (traditional Greek dip).  We have all had a good day and are now looking forward to a much needed weekend!

We have had a very busy week in Eagles class. We are getting stuck in to our new timetable and have enjoyed place value lessons in maths, Greek myths in English, using atlases in humanities and netball skills in PE, to name just a few lessons! Isla was awarded reading journal of the week for super entries in her reading journal. Well done for such a hard working week Eagles!

Eagles had a great time this week sampling Greek food with Mrs Carter, as part of our humanities topic.
Monday 30th September
 
Today we had a fire safety talk from Derbyshire Fire Service. We learned about how quickly fires spread, how to act quickly in a fire and the importance of checking the batteries in a smoke alarm every week. We also looked at different situations in which a fire can start quickly, and how to avoid it.

Today we have been writing and practising German role plays, using basic greetings and asking each other how we are.
Friday 18th October
 
We have had a very busy week in Eagles class this week. We have been learning how to use protractors to measure angles and about angle rules in maths, we have been learning about features of autobiographies and how to spell words with prefixes in English, all about life cycles in science and the importance of holy books to different religions. We are also still enjoying our topic on ancient Greece.
 
Friday 15th November
 
Today in our science lesson on properties of materials we tested which material was best for keeping porridge hot and ice cold for a 20 minute period. We took the temperature of porridge and ice placed in plastic, glass, cardboard and metal containers every 2 minutes, and on Monday we will discuss our findings and write our conclusions about which material was the best insulator.
 
Next week will be a busy week as it is anti-bullying week and we will also begin to plan our class assembly, which is on Thursday 28th November at 9:10.
