Well done to our very own Bailey who is currently in 3rd position representing QM. With 2 more days of the competition to go, let's get involved and make our way up the leader board Eagles!
Love this poem written by Caine - thanks for sharing :-)
L iving at home very bored,
O ught to stay home rules not ignored.
C ouped up together in our family home,
K eep social distancing stay on your own.
D on't go to school or to large crowds,
O r to parks or parties it's not allowed.
W hy aren't we out of quarantine,
N o toilet paper because of Covid19.
Writing challenge 4 - Journey to School by Alex Bishop
It has been getting colder the closer we get to school. But at least I’m not alone I have my friends and then we found a cave in the side of the mountain. We went in side and huddled up to keep warm.
Even though we were warm I still felt the could rasping breath on spin then I felt a hand on my shoulder. It was one of the teachers found us and took us to school but the road is still long and hard.
You never know what is in the white blizzard snow.
This is chiller login off.
Lazing in the sun?
Good Morning Eagles and Happy New Week!
I've just got back from my daily exercise and found all the cows lazing around enjoying the warm sun on their backs. I hope you are all managing to get outside in the sun each day. I don't know about you, but I'm sure the birds are singing louder at the moment. Go outside and see if you agree.
Well done everyone who shared their learning in assembly on Friday. It'd be great to see even more from Eagles next time. Either e mail it to me or to school and we can get it featured in the next assembly.
We miss you all!
Love from Mrs. Troughton and Mrs. Mc.Dermott

Welcome to the Summer Term 2020!
Well - this is certainly the strangest start to the Summer Term I can ever remember! I hope you've had a Happy Easter and that you managed to get some chocolate. I know it's not easy being in lockdown but you are all doing brilliantly well and we are so proud of how you are keeping yourselves and your families safe. Remember - this will come to an end.
Your new home learning packs are ready for collection. I am looking forward to hearing how you get on with the Harry Potter themed English! Also, I hope you enjoy the maths videos and activities. Let me know how you're getting on with the Home Learning - I'd love to hear your ideas and thoughts. What did you enjoy / what did you not enjoy? What would you like to see more of / less of? For example, some of you said you enjoyed the PE challenge, so I've added a bit more PE to the timetable; others said they'd like more art. It's great to know your ideas - keep them coming!
I look forward to our catch up on Friday, in the meantime, stay home and stay safe!
We miss you!
Mrs Troughton and Mrs McDermott

Good morning Eagles - it's the Easter Holidays!
I hope you are all happy and healthy and at home! (Notice the power of 3 there with alliteration!) I've just got back from my daily dog walk and thought you might like to see some of the newest arrivals at the farm. This cute calf is a few days old now and could do with a name - any ideas? The sun is shining and most of the cows will be going out to enjoy the new grass, but there are still some ladies in the "maternity unit" shed waiting for their calves to arrive. I can see this beauty from my window so I'll let you know when there's any news!
I know you'll be disappointed to hear that there are no new learning packs for the Easter holidays, but we will be back to work in 2 weeks. In the meantime, relax and enjoy the sun - I will be in school on Wednesday but after that I've got a few books to keep me busy. For those who would like some fun holiday activity ideas, take a look at this website. There are some great ideas: I'm going to try out a few of them myself. Send me an email with anything you want to share - we love hearing from you!
Remember Stay Home, Stay Safe!
Love from Mrs. Troughton and Mrs. Mc.Dermott
Let's share our Home Learning!
Well done to Alex for sharing his home learning, even before he'd received his Home Learning Pack! Looks like Alex is developing his interest in science and design technology. Great job! Remember everyone, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time exploring new things. Carpe Diem!
Hi everyone - hope you are all keeping safe and well? It was lovely to speak to some of you and your families on Friday. If I missed you, listen out as I'll be checking in again this Friday. Also great to have heard from some of you via email :-)
Remember if there's anything you need to help you with your home learning, or any other way we can help, do get in touch.
Thought I'd share a couple of things today. First there's some cool zentangle ideas for those who want to sit and relax with a pen and paper - I'm going to have a go at one of these later. Would be great for anyone to share their tangles! Also, a little spag quiz disquised as emojis.
Have a great day everyone and READ,READ, READ!
We miss you all!
Love from Mrs Troughton and Mrs McDermott
Year 6 is taught by Mrs Troughton with Mrs McDermott also being in the class as a teaching partner.
This is a very important year for the children as we prepare them for the expectations of secondary school. At the end of the year they will take their statutory assessments in reading, writing, maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar. There is no statutory science assessment currently however we will assess the children in science alongside speaking and listening using teacher assessments moderated in school and within local schools. Further information about this will be shared with parents throughout the year including advice on how you can support your children with this at home through our expanding Family Learning Programme.
Through our close links with the local secondary schools, we aim for every child to be familiar with the surroundings of the school of their choice, to have the self-belief and courage they need to succeed and ready for the challenges of Secondary school.
In the summer term there is a residential that is part of that all important transition from being a primary school child to one ready for secondary school.
Our theme is currently 'A Lost World' - where we will be studying the Geography and History of the Americas.
