Suckley School

Happy, Aspirational and Ready for Life

Autumn Term

Dear Parents,


Welcome to Eagles Class! I hope you all had a fantastic summer break and that you and your child/children are looking forward to the exciting year ahead.

We are starting this year off with our topic, The Victorian Era. This topic will enable children to give an overview of life in Britain during the Victorian Era. They will be able to describe characteristic features of the past, describe changes in a period of history and use sources of evidence to deduce information from the past through our chosen book, ‘Street Child’. Please see our topic web attached for more information.


A few gentle reminders:

  • Reading: Children must have their reading records in school with them every day so that they can be filled in when we read with them. Every Monday, reading records will be checked and if children have read at least 4 times at home and this has been signed by a grown up, they will be rewarded with a golden reading ticket to be entered into a prize draw.
  • Spelling: Spellings are sent to the children’s Spelling Shed account every Monday. They will also be given a paper copy attached in their spelling books. Please make sure your child practises their spellings regularly as they will be tested every Monday.
  • Forest school is on a Wednesday afternoon. Children should come in long sleeves and trousers and have wellies in school. We are in the process of ordering new waterproofs for KS2. In the meantime, children are welcome to bring their own waterproofs in.
  • PE is on a Monday afternoon. Please make sure your PE kits are in school on this day.

I hope the above has been useful in informing you about our first term in Eagles. If you have any further queries or concerns at any time, please do not hesitate to speak to myself or Mr Walker (Eagles Teaching Assistant).




Best wishes,


Miss Weaver

Team bonding to kick start our year

The day the crayons quit

Eagles have been completing a whole school project based upon the Oliver Jeffers book ‘The day the crayons quit’. Duncan decides to go on strike because his crayons are not happy with the way he treats them. Eagles have written letters from Duncan back to the crayons to apologise and keep them happy. In Art we explored primary, secondary and tertiary colours to create our own colour inspired painting. We also practised our sewing skills and created our own coloured crayons. 

Our favourite time of the week- Year 6 reading with their Wrens buddies

Enjoying our stewed apples at forest school

On Friday 14th October, Eagles competed in a cross country event in Malvern. The team spirit and determination to do our best was amazing. We had some amazing results including Sam H who finished 2nd, Jacob in 6th and Scarlett in 10th. We wish Sam and Jacob the best of luck as they go on to compete in the Worcestershire School Games County Cross Country Finals. A super morning!

To celebrate Harvest, we have participated in a range of activities. We began the week with a visit from a tractor, our parents came in to join us with our sewing craft activity and we took part in the Suckley Bake off. This involved us cooking a delicious pumpkin soup. 

Music at Dyson’s

We had a fantastic day competing in the girls and boys football tournament. The boys were so excited and have been preparing for this event for a very long time! They did us proud, finishing in 4th place overall. The girls arrived very nervous and with little confidence in their football skills. However, the team spirit was amazing and after we won the opening match, there was nothing stopping us. The girls came 2nd in the group stage and also placed 4th overall. An amazing achievement for everyone involved. 

Eagles took part in a Victorian workshop. This was facilitated by someone in role of a housemaid and focused on the role of servants. We learnt some of the jobs they would have had to do as servants such as cleaning, lighting fires and washing. The children took part in a range of carousel activities including washing, ironing, sweeping carpets, grinding coffee, chopping herbs and cleaning shoes.
