Welcome to Eagle Class! We are the Year 5 and 6 class and this is our classroom.


Our teachers are:

Mrs Fry - Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Mrs Stedham -  Wednesday, Thursday morning and Friday.

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Coates (who is in class every day).

This term we are learning about The Polar Regions

Arctic landscape

In terms 1 and 2 Eagle class will be taking an adventure through the frozen lands of the Arctic and Antarctic. They will learn about the geographical features of the regions and also ways that animals and people adapt to life in the areas that are habitable.

The frozen lands are changing daily, and global warming has an on-going impact on these regions and their inhabitants. We will consider environmental change and ways that we can work to protect the world around us. 

Whilst learning about explorers, the class will follow the adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of The Endurance, in an historic attempt to cross the Antarctic in 1914.  Tales of past courage and adventure in extreme conditions are both inspiring and fascinating today.
