Eagle Owls (Year 5/6)

Welcome to Eagle Owls!

Year 5/6

23rd April 2018


Dear Parents,

Although this is just the start of the summer term, we are already communicating with Secondary schools.

A member of staff from each of the Abingdon schools will be coming in to speak to both myself and the children within the next few weeks.

In addition to getting the Year 6s ready for their ‘National Showing Off’ week, the curriculum is as follows:


Maths                                     Problem solving, volume, co-ordinates, translating and reflecting shapes, interpreting line graphs

English                                    Writing opportunities linked to other curriculum areas, spelling, grammar and handwriting (ongoing)

Science                                               Light, Electricity

Computing                              Creating Games

RE                                            Prayer & Worship; Sikhs

PHSE                                      Relationships, Changing Me

Humanities                             Locational Knowledge, use of maps

Art                                          Creation from impressionist paintings

Music                                      Songs for Summer Production

PE                                            Striking Games, athletics


As the sun continues to shine, please make sure that there is a name in your child’s sweatshirt / cardigan so that if they misplace it, it can easily be returned. A named drink’s bottle is now highly recommended.


Please continue to check your child’s book bag daily for letters and other pieces of information.

Homework will still be given on Monday to be handed in on Thursday until the week before half term. Thank you again to those of you who support your child with this – it is a great help to them. Continue to encourage 5 reads per week (recorded) and ask how the book reviews are going; what happens at home really does make a difference.


Finally, Eagle Owls are delighted to welcome  a student, Charlie Mullineaux Sanders on final practice to work with the class from 30th April. It will be lovely to have an additional professional to work with us.


Yours sincerely,



C. Stirling
