Barn Owls

WB 20 11 2023

We had a great week this week with lots of exciting events! A whole school arts afternoon preparing art for the church; a multi skills event for Y2 to go and represent the school and our 7 Cross Country Finalists who went to High Lodge, Thetford Forest to compete against pupils from all over the whole of Norfolk!
Pupils from across KS2 went to High Lodge at Thetford where they raced against pupils from all over Norfolk, representing not only us, but also the rest of Norwich – against so many more than at Eaton Park! Thank you to all the parents who were able to transport and be our supporters 🩷 Well done to our brilliant 7. Our top finisher was a Y4 who came 14th out of 80!! Fantastic 👏🏻👏🏻

Schools all over the country were thinking about being kind this week and celebrating difference. We had Odd Socks day on Monday for this then a busy week as usual, ending with a non uniform day for Children In Need.

The Barn Owls investigated the effect that different drinks have on teeth by leaving some white hard boiled eggs on a selection and observing the results

We all enjoyed taking part in Odd Socks Day on Monday to mark the start of Anti-bullying Week. We wore odd socks to celebrate how we are all different. Craft Club also made some Bee Kind art work.

On Tuesday, the Barn Owls enjoyed a fantastic Ancient Egyptian day of discovery and debate at Norwich Castle Museum. They learnt about Egyptian life and mummification, looked at artefacts and made their own Egyptian collar. Their behaviour was excellent.

KS2 were excited to have a Music Worldwide Workshop on Tuesday. They got to work with Pedro Espi-Sanchis. He performed with a wide range of unexpected instruments, from pipes made from kelp to a bow with a gourd threaded onto it to make a stringed instrument. We learnt how even in the most remote village in South Africa they can make music from everything that they have!

Then on Friday we were able to transport 42 children from across KS2 to the annual Cross Country Competition at Earlham Park. Well done to all that took part and to parents who were able to come and support.

What a lovely end to the first half term – our Harvest Assembly. Thank you all so much for your donations and for braving the torrential rain to join us! Have a great half term.

Barn Owls have been enjoying music and this week concluded their ABBA lessons with a dressing up sing-a-long!

They have also been reading The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess and then researched the importance of cats in Egyptian culture.

The Barn Owls have learnt about Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs. They used this to write their name as a cartouche and are now using them as bookmarks.

After their visit from the dentist last week, the Barn Owls created information posters explaining how to keep teeth healthy.

Barn Owls are enjoying their music at the moment and are developing their rhythm and tempo with different warm up dances. They are keeping a tune with the glockenspiels and play along with the Charanga videos.  They are also learning Mamma Mia by ABBA and we enjoy hearing them singing along!

In Science this week in Barn Owls we learnt about what is inside a tooth. We made a cross section diagram to show what we had learnt.

In RE the Barn Owls are learning about Judaism. This week they decorated cupcakes to represent the story of Moses parting the Red Sea.

This week in Barn Owls they read the story ‘Rock and Roll’ by Hazel Terry. This inspired them to make their own ‘Positivity Pebbles’.  They have also begun looking closely at Teeth in Science and in particular how many teeth we have. They made their own teeth model using marshmallows!
