Eagle Owls

Welcome To Eagle Owl Class



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!



As we are sure you are more than aware, Year 6 is important for many things for your child, 
especially the children’s tests at the end of the year.  This academic year they will be taking
place in May, so please avoid booking any holidays for this particular month!  As a class we will be practising these from time to time throughout the year, so if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to come and talk to us at the end of a day.  At present, the government has stated the dates to be from Monday 13th May to Thursday 16th May 2019.


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.

  • Art and Design
  • Design and Technology
  • Modern Languages

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.

Partnership with Parents

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.


In the Summer term we have two transition days for the children so they can get to know their new teachers, teaching assistants, classroom environment and routines.  We also invite you to attend  transition sessions with your child so you can get to know the class team and attend a presentation about what to expect for the following academic year.


After the transition days, we offer by appointment, Transition Parent Consultation sessions with your child's current teacher, you and the 'new teacher' to ensure that together we are striving to achieve the absolute best for your child.  We hold follow up consultations (Parents Evenings) in the Autumn and Spring term to ensure that we are continuing to work together as a team and do everything possible to support your child achieve short and long term aspirations. You are also invited to make an appointment with Mrs Ball any time after school.

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.
