Miss Farinacci is the class teacher in Eagles Class and we are lucky to have the help and support of 2 great assistants: Mrs Adams and Mrs Howard. We are a small class (with 22 pupils) and enjoy a fun, enthusiastic, yet calm learning atmosphere.
LEARNING FROM HOME DURING THE CORONA VIRUS.
Your child should have bought home a red text book, containing their login to Eagles' Google Classroom. It also contains a suggested daily timetable, containing some ideas as to what to do during each day. I will not be teaching anything new in the coming weeks, as I am not there to deal with any misconceptions or errors, but we will be revising what has already been learnt. In the book, there are also some websites, which may be helpful to you - you can type the following into a Google search:
TTS Free Home Learning Packs
worldbook.kitaboo.com (hundreds of great, online books)
www.twinkl.co.uk/offer Enter code UKTWINKLHELPS
Classroom Secrets free home learning packs for parents
National Geographic Kids is a lovely website, with games and resources
Maths Factor (times tables part is free)
At the start of the Autumn Term, we enjoyed a few days of team building activities. Years 5 and 6 had already been in the same class, but Year 4 were new to us. All the year groups were mixed up for these activities and lots of fun and laughter was had. Below was the 'Egg Drop' activity, in which each team had to build a secure 'holder' for their egg to be dropped from an upper floor window! Not all the eggs survived!
We have all been enjoying the new Chromebooks, which are VERY child-friendly and easy to use.
PGL - Beam House
Years 5 and 6 from both Buckland Brewer and Parkham spent 3 nights at PGL. It really is a beautiful setting and the staff there, made it a fantastic experience for the children. Both schools worked brilliantly together, encouraging one another through all the activities. The children all faced various challenges and were proud to have worked hard to overcome them. We were very proud of all the children.
