Owls

Owls will have PE on Tuesday. They will also swim for an hour every other Friday. The weeks that they are not swimming, they will have an outdoor PE session. Children will need to remember to keep their PE kits in school on those weeks.
 
To speed up the changing process please remember to wear your swimming costume / trunks under your school uniform and take your underwear with you in your bag for afterwards!  Boys may wear swimming shorts but these must be above knee length.  You will also need a towel and can wear a swimming hat if you want to.  Goggles are not permitted for school swimming lessons due to Active Luton's policy.
 
Homework
Remember that:
  • Spelling homework is set every Friday and must be handed in on Wednesday.
  • Maths homework is set on Thursday and must be handed in on Tuesday.
  • Brain Builders are set on a Friday every three weeks. You have two weeks to complete it.

To understand the importance of Rosh Hashanah in Judaism

We learned about Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and made comparisons to our own celebrations of New Year – whether on 31st December or as part of a different religion’s new year.  We then made a Challah bread dough as a class.  After it had had the chance to prove (rise), we worked in groups to plait the dough.  Once it was baked, we shared it.  We also tried some pomegranate and apple dipped in honey.

What did people eat in the Stone age? The only way to find out is to dissect some Stone age poo!
Chiltern Open Air museum
We had a fantastic time when we visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum. Have a look at our pictures. We visited a house that used to be in Leagrave, a blacksmith and a real life Iron age roundhouse. 
In the roundhouse we ground wheat and then used it to make flat bread. It was put on the fire to cook. We tried to make butter but didn't whisk fast enough and made small pots from clay.
