We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break. The children have settled back in to school well and are eager to get stuck in to our new topic, which is an art based topic this term -Take One Picture.




We have had some great homework in so far. Lots of fantastic recipes have been followed and have tasted amazing.

George, in year 3, created his own Christmas advert using MovieMaker and what a lovely advert it is too - Well done George!



Wow! What a busy, but super, first half term we have had. The children have had great fun learning about the Ancient Greeks and have obviously worked very hard at home with their homework. Fantastic!

We were also had a visit from Mr Manning who told us lots of interesting facts about the Greek Hoplites and told us some fascinating Greek myths.

Listen to our amazing year 3 singing in Spanish!



We have had a great couple of weeks back in Eagles class. The children are enjoying their new topic 'Ancient Greece' - this week we learnt about the olympics.

We had a fantastic day last Wednesday for Roald Dahl day. It was great to see so many wonderful costumes.

Can you guess the children's favourite characters?



Welcome back to an exciting term a head of us!


What an exciting term Eagles class have had with the Summer concert, School trips and Art week.

Last week we went to The Earth Science Centre and investigated a variety of rocks and fossils. Some of us even saw an explosion in the quarry! We learnt the different names of rocks and used a sorting tree to identify which ones they were.

We have had a great Art week!!


We have been very busy and 'arty' this week. We had a day full of music on Monday where we learnt some great warm up techniques and a brand new song!

Throughout the rest of the week we made rainforest animals. First of all, we sketched a rainforest animal of our choice and then made it out of newspaper and modroc. Once the modroc dired we then painted and varnished them. They look great!!


The children have had a great few weeks learning and performing poems - here are a few...





Wow! What a term we have had! The children have worked extremely hard and have enjoyed a variety Art, RE and Science days.




We recently went on a trip to the Bath and West showground for a 'food for thought' day. The children were very well behaved and learnt a lot about where our food comes from.

The children are looking forward to their trip to Taunton museum.

Welcome back! Hope you had a lovely half term beak.

The children have settled well and are eager to start the term ahead.

We are having a real focus this term on editing our writing and have already started this.

Reminder - Reading and times tables at least 3 times a week please, these are checked on a Monday. Thank you!

 Listen to Eagles class sing their 4 times tables !

We have had a really exciting couple of weeks in Eagles class with a visit from a story teller and performing a dance in celebration assembly.

Year 3's have been learning about Forces and magnets in Science and created some 'magic'.

The children have been working really hard and are looking forward to all of the exciting festivities over the next couple of weeks.


What a fantastic first half term! The children have enjoyed learning about stories from other cultures and even adapted a traditional tale to an Indian folk tale.

We have been really impressed with the standard of homework that has been handed in. Thank you all for your hard efforts.

Here's to another super, but very busy, half term :)


The children have settled into Eagles class brilliantly. They are enjoying the topics and working extremely hard.

We read a traditional tale from India, The Tiger Child by Joanna Troughton, and enjoyed retelling it to the rest of the class with actions.

Year 3's have enjoyed learning about forces and demonstrated a push or pull force with actions. The rest of the class guess which force we created.






Mrs Perry and Mrs Richardson would like to welcome everyone to Eagles class page.


All the children have settled in really well to their junior class and are already working hard. They are really excited about their new topics. The children have been learning about traditional tales and have even started writing their own.

Thank you for your support with helping the children read 3 times a week and we are looking forward to seeing their termly homework later on in the term.
