Barn Owls

Who knew what amazing mechanical engineers we had in the class? We created machines that used gears, ramps, pulleys and levers.

Well done to our amazing girls' cricket team who came third today at the interschools competition!

Today, we acted out a scene from our class read 'The Giant's Necklace'. This will help us with our writing over the next few days.

We had a fantastic post SATs chocolate fondue party! We then had a very special awards ceremony!

Today was Mrs Matthews' last Science lesson with us before she retires. Mrs Matthews has been a brilliant help in our class and we will miss her.

Today we were microbiologists. Which area of the school do you think will have the most microorganisms?

You were right Barn Owls...it did deflate the longer it was left.

The children looked amazing today for Greek Day! Thank you to all the families for supporting this event!

We were inspired by our trip to the Fitzwilliam and designed our own Greek pots.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Cambridge today. The children's mature behaviour was commented on by others. They were excellent ambassadors for the school.

Whilst in Cambridge, we furthered our understanding of Ancient Greeks by visiting the Fitzwiliam Museum.

Life is certainly exciting in Barn Owls...following the departure of the chicks, we launched our Greek topic by going in the planetarium and identifying constellations and the Greek myths behind them.

Today the chicks left for their new homes. We hope to post updates of their progress soon as they will all live in the village!

In Science, we labelled the parts of a flower then dissected lilies and tulips to identify them. Why just look in books when you can do it for real?!

After studying the Japanese artist Hokusai's life and works, we recreated his 'Great Wave of Kanagawa' using pen and ink, colouring pencil, paint and collage.

We have had a very busy start back to 2018. One of our topics is the seasonality of food and as part of this we made roasted potaoto soup and cauliflower cheese soup. The children loved them - even the children who didn't like cauliflower cheese or sweet potatoes!

We had a fantastic time at the panto - thanks Friends of School for subsidising this!

We are very proud of our three wonderful violinists who have just passed some national exams and played for us today in assembly. Thanks also to Mr Weston - their fantastic teacher.

We finished our topic on changing materials today by investigating how to separate mixtures.

We learnt all about Christingles today and had great fun making them!

Barn Owls were word perfect today in the class assembly; they made us very proud. The assembly was all about what it would have been like at school in the Victorian times. Look at the video channel for the full assembly.

We had a great time in Science investigating reversible and irreversible reactions. We even made a volcanic eruption!

Today we made scientific predictions using our maths skills. We predicted what length a candle would burn to after a certain number of minutes by using data and a line of best fit.

This term in Science we are learning to be special effects creators. We are developing our knowledge of chemistry. Today we learnt about solutions, colloids and suspensions by making different types of mud (with foodstuffs!). Things got a bit messy - but Barn Owls are super cleaner-uppers!

In assembly, we had a fantastic Taekwondo demonstration by a Year 6 pupil.

Have a look at our Professor Snape character descriptions...

As part of our Quadring topic, we have been looking at old maps and old plans and photos of the school. Some children brought in information about their heritage.

The JPCSOs gave a fantastic presentation on how to stay safe on Halloween and Bonfire Night.

As part of out 'Getting on and Falling Out' topic, we created a poster to show how to cool down conflict. We voted for the winners.

We acted out the story - first without dialogue and then with the dialogue that we had written.

We have started preparing to write a narrative. Today we had to recall and order the story of 'For the Birds'.

We have been given some brilliant coaching in football by Georgia Wallis - who has been playing soccer in America for the past 5 years and before that played for Bath Ladies.

Barn Owls planned and carried out a fair test to see which cup kept Mrs Wood's and Mrs Woodhead's cocoa hottest for longest.

Looking at rights and responsibilities and the UN convention on the rights of the child helped us to create our own class charter.

Barn Owls are having a 'Decorate your homework book competition' We have been amazed at the artistic standard of the class!

Welcome back Barn Owls!

We hope you have had a great summer.  Mrs Wood, Mrs Sharman, Mrs Jones and Mrs Wood are really looking forward to seeing you again!
