Eagles Remote Learning: 22nd - 26th February 2021 

Dear Eagles

We hope that you had a fantastic half term holiday and that you feel raring to go on your home learning this week! As always there is a wide variety of learning set for you that covers lots of the Eagles curriculum so do try and complete it all. We loved all of the videos that you made based on the previous survivor story of the two men who shared a sandwich on the seabed. Here are a couple of brilliant examples:

       

The survivors story this week is all about two miners that were trapped underground for two weeks. I am not sure how I would cope underground for that long but they did get sent an IPod of music to pass the time! After discussions with some of you, we have introduced a weekly Among Us maths task; there is a different one for each year group all based around a maths theme. We hope you enjoy working out who the imposter is! Also new for this week is a science lesson all based around the brilliant scientist Katherine Johnson. The lesson includes a practical investigation into flight trajectories where you will need to throw different objects. Please be careful - we don't want any precious items to be damaged! 

Make sure you look through everything on this page and your seesaw journals so that you know what to complete this week. We recommend discussing the work for the week with an adult at home and then working out a timetable for each day. This way it all gets done and you will be more than ready when you return to school. 

 Stay safe and well everyone!

Eagles Remote Learning: 8th - 12th February 2021 

Dear Eagles

It is the final week before the half-term holidays and what a lot of learning we have covered despite not being at school! We really do hope that we are all back together in class very soon in order to carry on all of our fantastic work. We were all so proud of how you completed the Children's Mental Health week challenge, that each week we are going to set an activity that will help you explore the range of emotions ( good or bad) that we can feel each day and how to keep positive. The Calm project will do just this and we hope that the activities set each week will be a lovely 'time out' from all of the busy learning you are doing. Why not get the adults at home to have a go at the activities; even the adults need a bit of a break from all of their hard work too! 

Tuesday 9th February is also Safer Internet day and so there is a section of resources to help you remember how to stay safe online; this is even more important than ever at the moment as all of us are using technology much more. 

Keep working hard on all of the activities set this week and we look forward to seeing all of your amazing work!

Stay safe and well everyone

 Key Resources for Hour of Code: AI for the Oceans, Hot Wheels or Undersea Arcade

Choose one of the following activities for your hour of code this week.

             

                 

 Useful Information:

  • AI for Oceans is a simple activity but with a very important message about looking after our oceans and the role that technology can play in this. Undersea Arcade is an intermediate level activity so offers quite a bit of challenge
  • There are 20 coding puzzles to solve in order to navigate a Hot Wheels race car through increasingly complex race tracks. The first puzzles are very simple and introduce basic concepts. As you progress through, the puzzles become more challenging. The puzzles will get you to use your maths skills including distance, speed, changing direction, and acceleration
  • For the Undersea Arcade activity, you will make your own top-down arcade game. You'll start by programming the fish to move up and down when the arrow keys are pressed, then code the sharks to swim across the screen. You can also personalise the game by adding custom assets for the hero, the villain, and the background. Your game could be set at the beach, in the forest, or even in outer space! If you are feeling ambitious, you can add a variable to keep track of score and create win and lose condition. Click below to see an example:

Eagles Remote Learning: 1st - 5th February 2021 

Dear Eagles

I can't quite believe that we are now in the month on February! I always feel that once we get through January and I start to see the bluebells in my garden emerging from their winter sleep that Spring is definitely on the way! It is also just two weeks until half term too so we haven't got long before the holidays!  Last week, Mrs Williams, Miss Evans and I were so impressed by your work, particularly your volcano models and the different ways you chose to present the volcanoes that you had chosen to research. There were some superb thank you letters in PSHE and I do hope that when your heroes receive these letters it brightens up their day!

We are continuing with our theme of Disasters and Survivors in our learning; this week we will be looking the incredible story of survival of Juliane Koepcke from 1971. Don't worry, it does have a positive outcome at the end! If you have not completed Mrs Williams' Big Garden Birdwatch work, you have until 19th February to submit your results. 

As Mrs Groves' discussed in Friday assembly, it is Children's Mental Health Week this week. This year's theme is: Express yourself.  Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good. That's why at the moment I am undertaking my first latch hooking project; I am making some cushions to go with the new sofas that we have (hopefully) arriving in the next couple of week. 

It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself. Watch the virtual assembly below:

Dear Eagles

We are doing so well with our remote learning Eagles; Mrs Williams and I have been so proud of how many of you are tackling the work, giving it 100% and staying positive too! We are missing you so much in school so you sending us your work and coming to our online assemblies really does cheer us up!       

You will find below everything you need for your learning this week. The main theme is Volcanoes and I can't wait to see your 3D models! I wonder what volcano you will explore this week?
