Here are the links for some of the videos we’ve been watching as part of this topic.

Space!

Today we were presented with a pile of fruit and spices and some toilet roll and had to work out what on earth they might be for. It turned out they were to show the relative sizes of the planets and the distances between them. Mercury was represented by a peppercorn and Jupiter by a watermelon. We went out onto the rec to map out the distances between the planets. One sheet of toilet roll represented 16,000,000km.
On the photo, it’s quite tricky to even see Neptune (which was represented by Ruby holding a lime!)

Reindeer Invasion

Yesterday morning, Owls Class found that their classroom had been wrecked by reindeer over the weekend. The tables and chairs were upside down and there was reindeer poo all over the place! A video had been sent from Rudolph showing the reindeer dancing on the tables. We’re hoping they don’t return!

Christmas Concert

Last Friday, we held Owls Class Christmas Concert at the Village Hall. We had great fun singing and playing all sorts of Christmassy music for a very appreciative audience.

Our class assembly was all about Vikings. You can’t forget about them!

We were entertained by local early music group, Faronel who brought lots of weird and wonderful instruments to play for us. They played music from the time of Henry VIII whose reign we have studied this year.

PE day for term 2

Owls’ PE day will be Tuesday in term 2. Please make sure you bring your PE kit on the first day back.

This afternoon we all did our sponsored sports afternoon to raise money for the NSPCC. This was following our assembly and workshops yesterday on ‘Speak out, Stay Safe’. We started off with an obstacle course then moved onto a tag race (star jumps and jumping Jacks included), three songs of Jumpstart Jonny, running for 12 minutes and skipping/hoola-hooping for 12 minutes.
Let’s hope the fun we had helps us to raise lots of money for the NSPCC.
