'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School


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.

Welcome to Yr 6 Eagles Class


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.

Terracotta Army

On Wednesday 10th June, staff from South Devon College came to White Rock for a clay workshop. During the afternoon, all of Year 6 made their own soldiers to be part of our very own Terracotta Army! 

Buddhist Visit

On Tuesday 9th June, we were very luck to have a visit from Jake Lyne, who is part of the Western Chan Fellowship in Exeter. During the morning, we learnt all about Buddhism. This included the history, special festivals, their beliefs and we even had a go at some meditation.

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.

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!

Paddleboat Theatre Company

Paddleboat Theatre Company have been working with Eagles class every fortnight.  We have enjoyed learning about mime, mastering puppetry and how to express ourselves using our faces and bodies!

Spring Term Curriculum Plan

Guess the Book - World Book Day - 5th March 2015

Trip to Torbay Book Shop - Tuesday 3rd March 2015

Since half term, in Maths, we have been investigating fractions and ratio using cuisenaire rods.

In Maths, before half term, we made Fraction Monsters where each coloured cube represented a different fraction. Our monster had to equal 15 and a half. This was a challenge for us!


On Tuesday 3rd February Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a live interactive music and movement lesson run by the BBC programme 'Ten Pieces'. This was an opportunity to link with hundreds of primary schools who also logged on at exactly 11.30am to experience the same lesson!



January 29th - Our Trip to Las Iguanas

Autumn Curriculum Plan

We had a super afternoon performing for our relatives during our WWII tea dance.  The tables were laden with specially baked goodies, the hall was full of WWII songs and dances.  The children were dressed in WWII style outfits and had a fantastic time sharing the songs and dances that they had learnt.

Youth Speak Competition

On Saturday 29th November 2014, Jack, Tuti and Chloe took part in the annual Rotary Club's Youth Speaking Competition. The team had specific roles; Jack was the Chairperson, Tuti the Main Speaker and Chloe the Vote of Thanks. Their speech was entitled "If Children Ruled The World". The team gave an outstanding performance against 3 other schools in the same age category. The audience really enjoyed their speech and the Rotary Club praised their efforts. Well done team!

Our Learning Journey


During our Literacy lessons, we are focusing on a new class book entitled, 'Oranges In No Man's Land.' This is in keeping with our 'Conflict' theme and is based on the Civil War in Beirut.  The novel tells the story of a young girl named Ayesha and her struggle to support her family throughout a time of war.


Within the theme of 'Conflict', we have been completing our own research, using the new class set of ipads.  We have researched the causes of World War II, evacuation and rationing. In Art, we have forged links with an International school in Munich as a way  of exploring the World War II artist Henry Moore. We will be sharing our findings with the school as well as the artwork we will be creating over the coming weeks.
