Eagle Owls - Welcome to the Autumn Term!


Welcome to Eagle Owls and welcome to the second part of the Autumn term.

I thought it would be lovely for you to know what is happening in Eagle Owls this half-term. I have provided a list of topics below that we will be studying as well as information that you will need to know about class 5.

Maths – Measurement (Area & Perimeter), Angles (acute, obtuse, right angle and reflex), fractions (compare, order), statistics and measures (time).

Literacy – Text: The Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll. Writing style: Newspaper reports.

Science – Forces (gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction).

Computing – Code cracking.

RE – Beliefs and action in the world.

Topic – The Ancient Egyptians.

Geography – Rivers.

Homework is a regular and important part of school life but it is not meant for you and your child to worry about. I would very much appreciate your support with any homework that is set. Homework will currently be set on a Friday and it will consist of online learning using apps such as spelling frame, TT rockstars and Sumdog. Please email me if your child does not have their logins for the above websites.

Your child will complete weekly spelling tests. They can practise these spellings using Spelling Frame as I will be adding custom spelling lists so that they match those practised in class. These will be set every Friday along with homework. Their test will be the following Friday.

Please read with your child as much as possible and ask them questions about the text. We are not using reading records at the moment due to the current rules.

Every Wednesday your child will participate in an outdoor learning/PE day which will require them to wear outdoor clothing and outdoor footwear.

I look forward to working with you this year to develop your child’s learning to their maximum potential. If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s education with us please contact me via email (jedwards@harworth.snmat.org.uk). This email will not be monitored during the day due to teaching therefore if it is urgent, please contact school directly.


Thanks for your support,

Mr Edwards
