Owls started this week by designing our own cocktails (strictly fruit juice only!). We thought about how much of each juice type to put in and worked out the costings. We then, carefully, measured out each of the juices and added them to the mix. For our English, we then created a TV advertisement to sell our cocktail. There were some super adverts and the cocktails were very tasty too!!!

This week Owls have been looking at how different religions practise their faith. Firstly we compared Christianity to Islam. We were surprised to find that although there are many differences, there were a number of similarities too. Both religion have their own special places and books. They also require their followers to be charitable, look out for their families and support each other. 

Later in the week, we also looked at hinduism and how Hindu's believe in reincarnation. With this in mind, they too lead a very family orientated life and try to live a good life so they can achieve 'moksha' where they are at one with God. The children looked at some of the pictures from my travels in India and Nepal to see how Hindu's make offerings for their God at the river. We also looked at Rangoli patterns and how Hindu's put these outside their homes at Diwali to encourage the God, Lakshmi, to enter. The children then designed their own Rangoli patterns. 

 

 

 

Owls had a fantastic time exploring our new forest school site and getting muddy!!! We collected mini beasts, built dens and even did some face painting. Thank you to Mrs Turner for being a willing model!!!

This term our Science work has focussed on rocks. As part of this we looked at how fossils were made over billions of years. We then made our own recreations of fossils which thankfully didn't take quite so long! More pictures will be posted when they have set!

On Wednesday Owls class visited the Masjid E Noor Mosque in Gloucester. When we arrived, we were asked to remove our shoes (part of the respect for entering the mosque). We were then given a short talk on Islam and were amazed by some of the huge Mosques there are in the world. One, in Saudi Arabia, is as big as 40 football stadiums and can hold millions of people. We then visited the wash rooms where Muslims must go before they touch the Qu'ran. The children asked some excellent and interesting questions and the mosque guide was very happy to share their practices.

In the afternoon we visited Skillzone , an indoor village complete with roads, a train, shops and a house. All of these were used to demonstrate dangerous situations to the children and how to stay safe.  It was fun for the children but they also learnt some very important lessons in how to deal with dangerous situations.
