Golden Eagles

Maps Designed by Golden Eagles using 6 figure Grid References.

Golden Eagles have created maps of an imaginary island to practice using 6 figure grid references. They have put landmarks on their maps, which their partner will then locate using 6 figure grid references. They used water colours to enhance their maps and I am sure you will agree they have done a superb job!

Christmas Day in Golden Eagles

We have had some visitors to our class!

Golden Eagles have researched what Anderson shelters were used for, how effective they were and what materials were used to build them. We produced non chronological reports from our research and then built models to show what they would have been like.

Anderson shelters research and model building.

Golden Eagles have been reading Rose Blanche by Roberto Innocenti, set in Germany during World War II. It is about the Holocaust. We have been using drama to understand some of the characters and produced freeze frames of the arrogant mayor who supports the Nazi Party, as he captures a small Jewish child who has escaped the soldiers grasp. He smugly recaptures the child and hands him over, terrified, to the German soldier. Our freeze frames show this moment and we chose facial expressions and body positions to infer how our characters were feeling. We then added what the mayor might have said at this moment, based on what's we know of his character.
