Barn Owls

WB 13 05 2024

It’s been SATS week for our Year 6 and we’ve had Governors and Moderators in to check on our practice – pleased to say they were happy with what they saw. It’s also May Fair weekend- have a lovely time if you are able to make it. Thank you for all the hard work from the Friends, it’s an amazing event and raises fabulous money for our school.

Barn Owls wrote their own ‘Magic Box’ poems. Their finished poems have made a magical display!

On Wednesday, the Barn Owls visited Strangers’ Hall to enhance their learning about the Tudors. They had a great day learning about the ‘Strangers’ that came to Norwich in the sixteenth century. They took part in lots of activities; weaving, looking at documents, writing with a quill and ink, trying on Tudor hats, exploring artefacts in the Great Hall, and discovering what it was like for a refugee coming to Norwich.

As part of their Tudor topic, the Barn Owls have learnt all about what King Henry VIII was like. They definitely would not have wanted to get on the wrong side of him!

As we head towards Easter, the oldest children are going away for a 4 day residential next week! Wish them luck and sunny days ☀️☀️ Here are some of the things we’ve been doing from around school this week.
The Barn Owls have completed their ‘Science at Home’ challenge. This involved making their own musical instruments that could demonstrate pitch and amplitude. Here are some of their instruments.

Miss Gardiner, our PGCE student, led a sequence of English lessons about how to write expedition diaries. The Barn Owls were inspired by Simon Chapman’s expedition diaries and then wrote their own.
