Barn Owls

Topic work pages

Barn Owls did some performance poetry in front of Snowy Owls just before we broke up for half term – here are some photos!

They also produced some Topic pages in their books, from last term on the Tudors as well as their new topics on Queen Victoria and Living things and their Habitats.

The whole school have had a lovely end to the half term, learning about the Platinum Jubilee and doing different arts and crafts to celebrate. We hope you all have a fun week and make lots of historical memories with your little ones for the Jubilee weekend.

We all had a biscuit and some squash on Friday afternoon. Happy half term everyone!

Barn Owls have made their own version of The Magic Box

Some lovely ideas if you can zoom in on the photos!

What makes a solid, liquid or gas?

Barn Owl pupils were getting active this week, while learning about the molecules in solids, liquids and gases. They learnt how they are different for each state of matter and then experienced this out on the playground!

Can you tell which formation is a solid, liquid and gas?

World Adventures around North and South America!

Barn Owls completed some amazing posters of an imagined trip around North or South America – finding out facts along the way. They are great and the whole school were invited into the hall on Friday to have a look at their hard work.






A very sporty week!

We were lucky enough to have a Karate Taster session before we broke up for Easter as well as a Golf afternoon. Then this week we began to look at playing Handball.

In their art lessons Barn Owls are exploring Pointillism

Barn Owls have looked at the art form of Pointillism this week. They are experimenting with the technique before redrafting a finished painting.

Pointillism is often considered part of the Post-impressionist movement. It was primarily invented by painters George Seurat and Paul Signac. While Impressionists used small dabs of paint as part of their technique, Pointillism took this to the next level using only small dots of pure colour to compose an entire painting. When was the Pointillism movement? Pointillism reached its peak in the 1880s and 1890s after the Impressionist movement. Many of the concepts and ideas, however, continued to be used by artists in the future. What are the characteristics of Pointillism? Unlike some art movements, Pointillism has nothing to do with the subject matter of the painting. It is a specific way of applying the paint to the canvas. In Pointillism the painting is made up entirely of small dots of pure colour.


You’ve already done half a year!

Barn Owls have enjoyed looking at different countries this week. They have researched flags from around the world and made very accurate copies of them. They explored in detail the continent of Asia and have begun to look at the features of writing a diary. In PE they thoroughly enjoyed an active dance lesson!



Have a good half term break!

Barn Owls have used their class text to create Air Balloons that Phileas Fogg would have escaped in! They worked together in teams and found that they really engaged with the task and worked well in their teams. Barn have also created Pan Pipes and even had a go at playing them as part of their continuing Sound topic in Science.

Some pencil shaped book reports!
