Welcome to Owls!


Take a look to see what learning adventures our class have been on this term! 

A School Day Out!

On Wednesday 19th September, Owls and Herons went on an adventure to Peterborough. We were very lucky because we got invited into both a Mosque and a Cathedral.


In the Mosque we saw a beautiful  chandelier and were taught lots of fantastic information about the Muslim religion. We discovered that they pray 5 times a day, and have 5 rules they live by, known as the 5 Pillars. When we left the Mosque we were treated to a packet of crisps and a drink to say thank you for coming, they were very yummy!



Later that day we went to the Cathedral where we stood in amazement looking up at
Tim Peake's Spacecraft show. We saw the real Soyuz spacecraft, parachute and spacesuit that he wore and used up in space. It was very exciting and we learned lots of facts!

DT Day - Let's Go Fly A Kite

We are lucky enough as a school to, each year, partake in a DT Day. The children love the DT days as it allows them to explore and be as creative as they can! This year, we made our very own kites.

We spent the morning creating and decorating our kites. Once we had done this, everyone in school went outside to the school field and flew their kite. Unfortunately some of the kite strings got very tangled, however after a quick reconstruction of the kites, they were back up and flying. It was a fantastic day, and one we will remember for a very long time!

History Adventures!

In Owls class this term, our work has been influenced by the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We have done lots of learning, and thought a lot about how Britain changed through these different eras. During one of our lessons, we all became Neolithic hunter-gatherers and we were all SO hungry! We had to go round the school, playground and field to investigate and locate some food!  The hunter-gatherers used their tools to either catch animals or find berries or nuts. After all of this food, we we not so hungry anymore! It was a very interesting food, as we had to think about how much time, energy and planning had to go into the hunter-gatherers getting food.

Design and Technology

Our Design and Technology lessons this term were heavily influenced by our Stone Age to Iron Age topic. We have been carefully designing, creating and decorating jewellery from these eras. We very carefully created a blue print for our

jewellery, considering the materials, size and colour scheme we were going to use. After that we created our beads using clay or pasta, we then painted the jewellery and constructed it.
