In Summer 2 Eagles have PE on Tuesdays and swimming on Wednesdays. Swimming will start in the second week.
On Thursday 24th January we incredibly lucky to receive a visit from a fascinating man, who was 8 years old and living in Newcastle during the war. The children were absolutely riveted to hear what life was like for a child of their age during the time period we are styudying.
KS2 started the festive season with a beautiful service at St Barnabas Church. The children spoke confidently and sang beautifully.
On Friday 7th December we welcomed Tori from Albion Archaeology into Eagles and Falcons. She works locally (she even worked on the excavation of Roman Gate), and she brought all kinds of interesting finds in to show us. Not only was it very interesting to see what she'd found, but it was also great to find our what the day to day life of an archaeologist is like, and how to become one.
British Values Day
Tuesday 13th November 2018 was British Values Day at Greenleas, Derwent Road. The Year 4 children were split into 4 parties to campaign for which group would be awarded £100 to spend on activities for a Quiet Classroom at lunchtime that the whole school can use.
The 4 parties were:-
In English lessons, the children all worked hard to write persuasive speeches and then presented them to the rest of the school who then voted.
It was a close call, but the final winners were ..... Green Group, the Creative Crafters. Look out for Quiet Lunchtime Activities coming soon.
On Monday 8th October we welcomed Cais from Legion XIIII to Greenleas, Derwent Road. He soon got the children trained up like real Romans. They improved their Latin, perfected their marching skills, and even found out how to buy a slave at a slave auction.
