The children in Eagle Owl Class, Year 5 and Year 6, are taught by Miss Nelson and are supported by Mrs Wiltshire and Miss Blake. We believe that through an outstanding, nurturing environment filled with an unconditional positive regard for one another; we create responsible, resilient risk-takers!
We are really looking forward to teaching your children this year and have lots of exciting things planned to ensure that every child feels safe and supported, whilst being engaged and challenged to reach their potential.

This year's learning...
In Eagle Owls we follow White Rose Plans for maths, and then writing and reading planning, designed by the Subject Leaders; these ensure that they suit the needs of our learners. To support other areas of the curriculum, we follow Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Projects; a skills based curriculum that supports cross curricular links.
This year we have a range of these ILP's that will be complemented by timetabled enrichment opportunities. The topics are:

The National Curriculum
In Eagle Owls, all children access the following subject areas:
In the Autumn term you are invited to attend our Curriculum Evening where we will share the new expectations, systems and routines, we will also touch upon the above areas and what each will look like for your child. This will be followed by the first Parents' Evening in October which will focus on how your child has settled in, their attitude to learning and organisational skills! If you have any questions as the year progresses, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Ball or Mrs Ellis to arrange an appointment.
To ensure that you feel well informed about your child's attainment and progress you will receive a termly report that details your child's attainment, targets for the following term and individual achievements. In the Spring term, there will be a mid- year Parents evening. In Summer 2 you will receive your child's end of year report. This will cover your child's progress and attainment in all areas of the curriculum. If you have any queries, there will be the opportunity to discuss these at a Parents' Drop in towards the end of the summer term.
We understand that any transition can be exciting and daunting at the same time for parents and children. This is why we try to do everything we can to make transitions as smooth and as enjoyable as possible.
Working closely with parents is very important to us at Lydeard St Lawrence. In Eagle Owl Class we have many events throughout the year to encourage this. If at any time you have concerns, please either catch Mrs Ball at the end of the school day or make an appointment via Mrs Ellis, the school secretary.

While this class webpage will be updated termly please follow us on twitter @LSLschool
The twitter page is updated regularly. We find twitter to be an invaluable resource that not only promotes learning and celebrates work but also allows parents to see the days 'events' and allows us to celebrate the children's achievements both in and out of school. Twitter is an established method of communication which we are all very excited about here at Lydeard St Lawrence, so please do check it when you can and support us on this exciting journey!
See the bottom of our page for links to general Maths and Literacy games, as well as lots
of sites for SATs revision! Let us know how you get on.
We have a lovely large book corner, with cushions made by the children and enjoy daily whole class 'read aloud' sessions. We listen for and collect wonderful words and phrases to use in our own writing!
To see what we will be learning, click on the relevant curriculum letter at the bottom of this page.
Remember to record your daily reading in your log, to earn your golden tickets each week!
