Eagles are high flyers, tenacious hunters and have excellent vision. As the oldest pupils in the school, we bring inspiring ideas and innovation. Once we have a goal in mind we strive to obtain it and never let it slip through our talons. We are the King of Skies and soar high with ambition.
In Class 6 Eagles, the teacher is Mr Page, with Mrs Grimes and Mrs Holman as the Learning Support Assistants. The Year 6 Teaching Team includes Mr Page, Mrs Tyson and Mrs Grimes.
The Year 5/6 theme for this term is 'Made in China'. This is a cross-curricular approach to learning, which will provide the pupils with an all encompassing and enriching learning experience. The pupils will be immersing themselves in The Magic Paintbrush by Laurence Yep, using this text as a stimulus for their writing and reading, as well as enhancing other areas of the curriculum. For more information on the curriculum, look at the Summer Term Curriculum Plan below.

Monday 8th June 2015
We had a fantastic trip with the whole of Year 5 and Year 6 to the Princess Theatre. Whilst there we watched the talented Philharmonia Orchestra. We were treated to their interpretations of Britten's Soiree Musicales; Beethoven's, Symphony No.5; Britten's Simple Symphony; Bizet's Carmen Suite and Brahm's Hungarian Dance No. 5. The members of the orchestra were able to effortlessly tell the musical stories of these very famous works and it was a joy for us to experience a real live orchestra.
Friday 15th May. Library Presentation
We were thrilled today to present some children in Upper Years with prizes from Paignton Library. They were chosen as they did amazing descriptive writing during their library visit. Congratulations!
Eagles' Visit to Paignton Library - Friday 1st May
We had a great experience walking from school to Paignton Library. Whilst at the library, we had a tour of all of the sections in the building, including all of the resources available to us. It was great to see what the library can provide and everyone enjoyed exploring all the different genres the library had to offer. We were very luck to partake in some activities related to our theme, 'China'. We learnt about the Chinese Zodiac and celebrated Chinese folklore in storytelling and writing descriptive poems. We had chance to have our lunch at Goodrington Sands on the way back to school. All in all a 6.3 mile round trip!
