In dance, Owl class has been learning the Haka. Inspired by watching clips of this performed at rugby matches, this week, the children have been creating their own Hakas. They look pretty scary to me!
In the run up to Christmas, Owl class turned their hand to baking. Pastry was rolled out and mince pies made, along with different shaped Christmas cookies. These were all enjoyed at the Christmas carol concert. The children also made individual Christmas cakes which they expertly decorated before taking home to (hopefully) share with their families.

The girls enjoyed Mrs Beaton’s (A.K.A Mrs Christopherson’s) baking session which was followed by music and a good old fashioned rendition of all things bright and beautiful.

The photos show children exploring the materials they chose to wrap the ice hands in, and how well they were insulated. We have loved this science topic so much and are so pleased that it will continue into next
Owl class has loved working with Luke this term, we have been learning new rhythms and breaks on the Djembe drums (you may have noticed tapping and clapping at home as children have practised the breaks). Our favourite break to learn this term was the Mozart break, which fitted into our Victorian topic beautifully. The Masha rhythm was tricky but most of us mastered
Despite the weather we are having a great time.
Owl Class visited Warneford this week for a morning of DT and Science workshops. We spend the first half of the morning doing some textiles. We created little keyring pouches with our choice of colours and designs. It was great fun; we learnt how to do a running stitch and we all came home with our own keyring. After break, we went into the
