Remembrance days

Barn Owls have found out about why we have Remembrance Day. It is 100 years since Armistice Day and we want to remember the soldiers from then and now who protect freedoms.

Our art work is part of the corridor of Remembrance that we have made...

We went to the War Memorial in the village for our Remembrance Service.

Osiligi Maasai Warriors

A group of Maasai from Kenya visited to share something of their traditions and culture with us, through dance, song big and discussion. It was an amazingly no experience!

The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge

We have had a busy day, visiting this amazing museum.

First there were some world class art pieces to enjoy, talk about and draw. 

Then we spent some time looking at real Ancient Greek and Ancient Egyptian artefacts. One of the teachers at the museum helped us to understand what some of the Ancient Greek items told us about life in Ancient Greece and their beliefs and stories. The children were spellbound by the myth of Persephone.

Finally we were able to look around the Ancient .Egyptian artefacts. We could see how they lived from some of their models and we even saw some mummified animals from Ancient Egypt!
