Welcome to Barn Owls!

Hello everyone! Welcome to Barn Owls. We have had a brilliant start to Year 3! Our class is creative, lively and enthusiastic. For Harvest Festival we decided to perform our own class rap! The children have worked really hard to think about what 'Harvest Festival' means to them. They wrote the lyrics themselves and had great fun performing. The whole school was able to watch our videos via a Teams assembly. If you watch all the clips in order you will be able to see the whole rap. The last clip is an outtake just for fun!

VE Day Party

Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 completed their topic on World War 2 with a VE Day Party! They dressed in 1940s outfits for the occasion and helped to prepare food and decorations for the event, before enjoying eating and dancing at the party, set out like a street party, but in the classrooms at this time of year...

Imperial War Museum Duxford

Today we have visited Duxford, to find our more about our World War 2 topic and also to enjoy some of our 100 memorable events: we have learnt from an older person and we have explored a plane- even two planes! For some children this was their first ever time on an aeroplane- very special...

We hope you enjoy some of our photos of the day.

Autumn Games

Fun was had by all, playing Flap the bat in the hall. Much wafting caused the paper bats to fly above the ground! Playing autumn games is one of our 100 memorable events.

We listened to instructions to help us and learnt how instructions are written down. 




Then we played apple bobbing in the autumn sun...













Learning to play the ukulele

This was a very exciting day for us- the start of a term of weekly lessons, learning to play the ukulele. By the end of the session, we were playing the chord of C and using this to accompany a song!







Active Maths

We have been up and about, working out which numbers are represented by different apparatus. Working in pairs helps us to reason or justify our answers.
