Barn Owls

Welcome to Barn Owls.  

In Science today, we investigated which materials were electrical conductors and which were electrical insulators.

We then created our earthquake proof buildings and tested them on a wobble table!

We had a great time designing earthquake proof structures.

Our advent calendar has been opened!

We had fun investigating solubility in science this week.

The class wrote and presented a fantastic class assembly about Japan.

Barn Owls know what to do if there is an you? These posters will help you to know.

Look at our fantastic artwork that we based on Hokusai's print of The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.

After making miso soup, the class wrote and decorated the recipe. We are so impressed with their illustration skills and beautiful handwriting.

The Natural History Museum did a fantastic volcanoes and earthquakes over Zoom. The presenter was amazed by the fantastic knowledge of the class.

Barn Owls have a new pet. Meet Naruto the tamagotchi!

We performed a traditional Japanese Bon Odori dance.

We learnt the parts of the body in Japanese by singing 'Atama, kata, hiza, ashi' (Heads, shoulders, knees and toes).

Barn Owls are excellent at using chopsticks! We had great fun doing a chopstick challenge!

Miso soup is a very popular food in Japan. We made and tasted our own.

We tried pickled ginger and wasabi peas. Some people were brave enough to do the wasabi challenge!

A typical Japanese street food is yakisoba (noodles and vegetables). Barn Owls loved it!

Today we had 'Japan Day' to further our understanding of the topic. We dressed up in Japanese themed clothing.

Today,in science,we separated materials using evaporation, magnetism, sieving and filtration.

After learning about Buddha, we created storyboards.

We had great fun creating our Christmas cards. It's never too early to prepare!

We had a fantastic time orienteering at Witham Country Park today. The children showed fantastic teamwork, speed and map-reading skills.

We created factfiles using Word about the Japanese artist Hokusai.

Learning Japanese is lots of fun! We played Janken pon (rock paper scissors) and then introduced ourselves in Japanese.

We are having a great time in P.E lessons with Boston Utd!

This week, in science, we investigated the properties of materials.

We had a great time in science today saving the Earth! (And finding out what makes a fair test.)
