What is the Mayan's Legacy?
As Eagles enjoy eating (!) and the Mayan society established the first known cocoa plantations, we launched our new project by making and decorating chocolate truffles and creating a 3D pyramid box to put them in.

Wow - what a fun-filled, jam-packed five days Eagles crew enjoyed on camp. Here are a few of the hundreds of photos taken:
Term 5 - Spawn to be Wild?
We launched our new mini project by thinking about the amazing journey the European Eels have to face to travel from the Sargasso Sea to Europe. They also have to avoid predators and overcome many barriers on the river.
Today (Friday 17th May) we went to the River Yeo to release our elvers which we have been keeping as pets for the last three weeks. We made a new St. Andrew's record by keeping all 118 elvers alive!
Once they had been released we spent over an hour pond dipping. We found lots of cool things like: baby newt, stickleback fish, caddis fly larva, dragonfly nymphs and lots more.
We then had a little bit of fun at the Millennium Green! By Evie
Space Detectives - February 2019
Eagles crew learnt what it takes to be an astronaut when Jo from Space Detectives came in to explain the necessary skills required. Over the course of the morning, they explored a range of activities each linked with a particular skill needed to become an astronaut: communication, team work, endurance, perseverance, fitness, mental agility, quick reactions, calm under pressure, trust, leadership and problem solving. They were also able to step into the virtual 3D world of space by using virtual reality!
Out of this World - January 2019
To launch our new project each home team was challenged to make a model of our solar system, a travel brochure page on a particular planet and a mnemonic (memory aid) to help remember the order of the planets.
The challenge was on ... could Eagles crew find out why the project was called 'Dragons from the North', create a flag, make a Viking longboat and present all of this by 2:15pm?
Yes - they sure could!
