Owl

Welcome to Owls Crew!

Where does our food come from?

 

We launched our new project last week - Where does our food come from? In our forest school session, we tasted different foods from around the world and discussed where they might come from.

We also launched our sunflower-growing competition! I wonder which Owl will grow the tallest sunflower?

Writing a balanced argument

 

Would you want to join the Roman army...? None of these Owls would! They wrote great balanced arguments, though!

Testing rocks

 

In our Science lessons this term, we are learning about rocks.  Today we tested rocks.  If the rocks fizzed when we squeezed a drop of vinegar onto them, then they were likely to be sedimentary rocks.  We learned that sedimentary rocks can contain the bodies of sea creatures - if a rock was once the shells of creatures, it will fizz when acid is dropped on it...

Roman Army Application Letters

 

Would you want to join the Roman army?  These children did! I was really pleased with how they set their letters out in paragraphs and used conjunctions such as when/if/so to join their ideas...

How did the Romans change Britain?

 

This term we are learning about the Roman empire and the Roman invasion of Britain. We will be examining how the Romans changed Britain.

For our WOW day, we visited Caerleon in Wales.  We looked at ancient Roman artefacts in the museum and saw the remains of the Roman baths and amphitheatre...

How has Congresbury changed over time?

 

This term, we are being historians and geographers and asking - How has Congresbury changed over time?

We began by walking around the village. We discovered what a mass sundial was and found two other places in the village where the used to be a school.

We also heard the gruesome tale of a highwayman who once attacked a farmer on his way to Congresbury.........

 

Forest School

 

 

Today we made our own forest artwork in the style of outdoor artist and sculptor Andy Goldsworthy....

How do rivers get their water?

 

Our big question for Owls Crew this term is: how do rivers get their water?

 

We have already investigated the water cycle and found out about evaporation and condensation.

Today we looked at maps of the local area to see if we could find out where the River Yeo begins!
