Science in Barn Owls
In Science, we've been learning about heat and how heat affects particles, leading to changing states. This week, we've focused on the complex idea of thermal equilibrium. In order to get a sense of how we perceive different temperatures, we carried out an experiment where we submerged our hands in warm and cold water bowls, then putting them into room temperature water. The effect was quite strange!
Music in Barn Owls
We've been learning a variety of songs with Mrs Jolliffe over the past few weeks, and had a chance to try out some musical accompaniment recently.
Barn Owls have used a variety of techniques to adapt, modify, change and create vector images. Their pictures have been creative. There's been a good sense of teamwork as well, as pupils have helped each other with tips and hints to upload images and find ways to use Google Draw.
Over the past few weeks in KS2 Yoga Club, we've been learning different positions, such as Mountain Pose and The Elephant. The children have been showing good flexibility, as seen here (Miss Bryant's been fine, but Mrs Reid has struggled to walk without discomfort the following day).
The Eye of the Dragon!
The Snowy Owls used pastels to create these dragon eyes. I think you will agree, they have done a fantastic job.
Air Raid Shelter!
The Tawny Owls have been looking at the history of London. This week they have learnt about events that nearly destroyed our capital city including, The Gunpowder Plot, The Great Fire of London and The Blitz. During break time today, some of the children took their indoor learning outside and independently put it into their play using this equipment as a bomb shelter whenever a siren sounded!
Experimenting with sound
We learnt that to produce a sound with an instrument, you can strike, pluck or blow it. We discovered that these group of instruments are called percussion, string or wind. We made our own string instrument and plucked it to make a sound. We experimented with pitch and used our knowledge to explain what was happening.
Learning in the Snowy Owls
The Snowy Owls have made a great start to the new year! We have had a busy first full week! We started our new topics (The Shang Dynasty in history and sound in science), completed a physical fitness test with Mr Pugh, explored pitch in music, applied multiplication and division facts, used pastels in art and begun to read a new text about a dragon. In forest school, we created our own woodland creatures using clay and played a very competitive game of Viking Chess! In PSHE, we have discussed new beginnings and have set ourselves some goals for the new year. We finished the week with a fantastic swimming lesson at Ruby Oak Pool.
January 13th, 2022
This morning the Owlets took the chance to go and spot signs of frost. The playing field looked 'beautiful' according to the children.
Wonderful Week Back
The Tawny Owls have returned to school full of enthusiasm and have earnt lots of class beads for their excellent learning behaviours.
This morning, they explored pitch during music and then copied patterns involving movement and the use of glockenspiels.
Mr Hill dazzled and amazed us with some card tricks on the last day of term. All secrets were kept within the Magic Circle.
Online French Lesson
Barn Owls had to adapt to the conditions in the last week. As Mme Jordan was unable to come into the class, she provided a lesson online. The children responded beautifully and learned a lot about seasonal and festive foods in France.
Barn Owls managed to find just the right weather to head up to the Village Christmas tree and add their wooden decorations.
