Keep an eye out for buboes, rats and fleas! The Black Death is back!


Year 5 Eagles have excitedly begun exploring through History in their 14th Century based topic for this half term around The Black Death - Pestilence, Peasants and Princes.


Starting the term off with a buzz, the children 'met' pestilence - a mysterious figure - plaguing the classroom with his rats, infecting all in his way with the terrible plague!


The Year 5 team are remarkably impressed with both the Eagles and Marsh Harriers with their engagement in The Black Death and their home learning over the summer - the children are already becoming experts on the plague; be sure to ask them for cures if it ever returns!

The Black Death


See what a few of the Eagles made of our Sparkling Start and how they turned this into a Diary entry!








The Eagles have been using all kinds of resources to help with their Maths in our learning time.




PE & Outdoor Forest School


P.E. is on Mondays (with Mr Gook) and Wednesdays (with Mr Sharpe). Children are reminded that the correct P.E. kit is: a white shirt, black shorts and appropriate trainers. Jumpers are recommended during the colder months. 


Forest schools will take place on Wednesdays after P.E. with St Margaret's Primary Academy's new Forest Schools teacher - Mr Heffernan.


Please ensure your child brings appropriate clothing for both activities.

Home Learning


Home Learning is now set at the start of every half term with the children choosing to complete activities each week. They will have the course of the half term to ensure all Home Learning is completed.
