Home Learning

School games day - only a little bit different!

Sadly this year our school games day needs to be a little bit different. For the children in school, we will be holding this on the field rather than Sandyacres and we will be competing in our zones. We will still be able to cheer each other on in the afternoon when we race against each other -  in much smaller groups! Please click here for the school games day flyer. For those of you who are home learning - we need you to join in too! Hubblebubble (one of our keyworker groups) has worked really hard with Mr Harlow to come up with ideas for you. Please click here to see these activities. Once you have completed them, send your results to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can work out the scores across the different houses to see which team will be awarded the trophy this year - come on Eaglewick!
