Eagles

Welcome to Eagles!
 
We are one of our three Year 5/6 classes. At this upper end of Key Stage 2 the ethos is very much on developing the sense of independence and responsibility:we have high expectations of our children, particularly as role models for the rest of the school, but we also have high amounts of fun along the way!

On this page you will find lots of useful information about what we are up to on a daily basis in class, as well as how children's learning can be supported at home, both from a parent's perspective, as well as how children can learn independently at home in their spare time.  We hope you find it useful.

On the 13th February, our year 5/6 pupils had an unique opportunity to speak to and listen to the illustrator of Jemmy Button - Jennifer Uman. The children came up with some great questions and Jennifer supplied some inspirational and thought provoking answers. It's not every day an illustrator agrees to skype at 6am in the morning and wants to continue keeping in touch. She was really impressed with the depth of the children's questioning. This short clip taken from an afternoon of recording gives you an insight into the message she regularly shared throughout the afternoon; one that closely matches the ethos of Oakmeadow Primary.
