Maths – Complete your 10 for 10 arithmetic and reasoning booklets over the Easter. As I said in class this homework will hopefully keep you going over the Easter break, with just 10 minutes of maths everyday, please don’t spend any longer or worry if you miss a day.
Reading – You should all have your reading books at home with you (if not choose a new book from home), once you have completed the book over the Easter I would like you to discuss the following with your parents. Please could your parents then sign your home school records to show that you have completed this.
- Can you summarise the plot of your story?
- Which character do you like the most and why?
- Which part of the book made you laugh? cry? feel scared?
- What time period is the book set in and how do you know?
- Who is the most important character?
- Who would enjoy this book? Who wouldn’t?
- Is it like any other books that you may have read?
- If the author was to write a sequel, what would happen?

I am so happy to announce that we have retained our Mock trial trophy after winning this years competition! In addition to this our Defence team finished second overall with our 2 prosecution team finishing an impressive 14th out of 22 teams.
Since Christmas Eagles have been developing their gymnastics skills. This unit culminated in the children working in pairs to choreograph their own sequences and share these with the parents on Friday.
I was incredibly proud to watch how far the children had come, developing their control, balance and key skills, as well as this they all showed a huge amount of courage to perform their 2 minute long sequences in front of a packed audience.
Check out the video below to see some of the highlights.
