Welcome to Eagles Year 5 and 6 Class 2016-17
Our class teacher is Mrs Dixon, and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Nightingale
Photography was very popular in the Victorian Era. The children have therefore been researching the inventor William Henry Fox Taylor. He went on to develop the three elements of photography: developing, fixing and printing. One of his most favourite photographs was taken of dandelion seeds. Therefore the children have recreated his photographic image of dandelion seeds through their art work - based on sketching as well as observational drawing. I think you will agree their art work is stunning!!!
Forest School takes place on a Tuesday afternoon. Below are just some of the learning activities enjoyed by Eagle Class.
On a Friday afternoon we have book buddies where year 5 and year 6 children read to the Wrens! The little book buddies have a young role model to look up to; they look forward to reading with their big friend and they get to see good learning in action! Take a look at our photo gallery ....
