O's Victorian Tea Party

Letter about school closure.

Today, we dissected flowers and labelled the different parts.

Barn Owls also composed pieces of music to tell the story of a Victorian fairy tale based after we learned about how Prokofiev composed Peter and the Wolf.

We made book trailers of classic Victorian fairy tales for World Book Day.  They are on the video channel - please have a look.

We experienced the Lincolnshire Primary Proms at a genuine Victorian Theatre. Did you know the 'Proms' were introduced by the Victorians? We even saw taiko drummers!

There were also lots of Victorian style shops for us to see - and even some decoupage!

We enhanced our understanding of the Victorian school by visiting the Museum of Lincolnshire Life today.

Did you know the British Empire covered 25% of the globe and was 20% of the world's population in 1889?

We played traditional Victorian playground games - marbles, skipping and hopscotch.

We did Victorian style PE drills.

Decoupage was an art technique that the Victorian used. We did our own versions of decoupage.

Victorian handwriting was a bit more elaborate than we usually do - but Barn Owls did it brilliantly!

To understand our topic of the Victorians, we dressed as Victorians and did Victorian school activities. We all dressed the part an tried to pull serious faces for the photos!

Today, Barn Owls learned the paralympic sport of Boccia. Thank you Mr Haslam from Middlecott Academy!

Well done Barn Owls! 3rd out of 11 schools in the Sportshall athletics finals!!!

Today, our Mini Police assisted PCSO Abbotts with a 'crime scene investigation'. They took fingerprints, we dressed in crime scene suits and we looked at how evidence could be gathered.

We carried out an investigation to find out which areas of the school had the most micro-organisms growing there. Thank you TCHS for the nurient plates!

Our scientists of the day showed fantastic research skills in determining how to classify animals.

In gymnastics, we linked our work on bridges to making bridges with our bodies.

We were amazed with how much weight our bridges supported! We also gave presentations about them to the class.

The winning bridge; stylish and strong! It held a whole row of full coke cans and a jar full of marbles!

Our engineers of the day.

We started the new year with a new topic - The Victorians. We will be learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and so we developed our knowledge of bridges. In design technology, we designed and then made our own bridges.

We finished our Japan topic by reviewing what we had learned about Japan (and practising our use of bullet points!).

We had a great time at the Christmas Party. Thank you Friends of School!

After researching about earthquakes, we created powerpoints and presented them to the class. Have a look at these fantastic examples!

One of our Barn Owls has been working super hard at home to learn Japanese kanji!

Barn Owls used their origami skills to make Christmas decorations!

Today, Barn Owls were given training and subsequently qualified to become 'Playground Leaders'.

We were delighted to share our knowledge about Japan with the rest of the school and our families in our class assembly. The children wrote and presented the assembly completely independently. Well done Barn Owls.

We also visited the Natural History Museum. We also saw the ichthyosaur fossils that we learned about last year.

As part of our Japan topic, Barn Owls went to London yesterday. We had the incredible opportunity to visit the Embassy of Japan! Whilst we were there we experienced a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and had a go at Japanese calligraphy.

We did so well at Sportshall athletics that we got through to the plate finals in January!

Today we investigated how to separate materials using evaporation, sieving, filtering and magnetism.

Please look at the video channel to see videos of our Taiko drumming. 

We learnt how to play the Japanese Taiko drums!!! Thank you to the AMAZING Jared Sensei from Tengu Taiko.

After reading the start of Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, we wrote newspaper articles about Michael's disappearance.

Following the success of making miso soup, we wrote and decorated our own recipes so that we could make it again at home!

Please have a look at the Japan Day videos on the video channel (click on the 'children' page).

Barn Owls astounded us all with their fantastic origami skills. They made jumping frogs - then we raced them!

Our origami jumping frog race finalists!

'Atama, kata, hiza, ashi' is the Japanese version of 'Heads, shoulders, knees and toes'.

We played 'Janken Pon' (Japanese 'Rock, paper, scissors').

Sushi making and eating. Everyone tried wasabi - it made our eyes water but we still loved it! The dried seaweed wasn't to everyone's taste however...

Miso soup is a staple food in the Japanese diet. We made and then tasted miso soup. It was delicious!

We tried Japanese seasonal fruits: kaki (persimmon) and nashi (asian pear).

Everyone uses chopsticks to eat in Japan so we did a 'chopstick challenge' with Haribo!

Today is Culture Day in Japan. To celebrate this we did a whole day of Japanese cultural activities. We dressed in Japanese themed clothes...

We created posters to explain what to do in an earthquake.

As part of our topic on Japan we have started learning about earthquakes. Today we did an earthquake drill!

The Mini Police gave fantastic presentation about Halloween and Bonfire Safety.

The Mini Police's powerpoint.

Mrs Wood's tea always goes cold too quickly. Barn Owls carried out an investigation to see which material was the best insulator.

In preparation for writing a newspaper article, we wrote and performed a news bulletin.

Today we predicted a storyline from Kensuke's Kingdom and acted it out.

We ceated Haikus (a Japanese form of poetry) about our nature area and The Great Wave.

Barn Owls recreated 'The Great Wave of Kanagawa'.

We analysed the famous print of The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai.

As part of our Japan topic, we learnt about the Japanese artist, Hokusai. We created factfiles on Word about him.

Our scientist of the day.

Look at what happened to our salt water!

As part of Roald Dahl Day, we made our own marvellous medicines to help us understand reversible and irreversible reactions.

We started off our topic on the properties of materials by investigating how to free the Zurgians from the ice hands as quickly as possible.
