Mottled Owls

English - Biography

At the end of the last half-term, we met Sean Rose - a GB paralympian with an incredible story and string of sporting awards and achievements. He was an inspirational sportsman and showed us that we can achieve anything we put our mind and effort into. In class, we have been researching all about his early life, life-changing accident and subsequent achievements since becoming paralysed. We have written in chronological order, past tense, third person and included facts as well as personal feelings and quotes from Sean Rose.


Science - Animals and their Habitats

Over the years in primary school we have learned lots about classifying animals according to their similarities and differences in characteristics and habitats. We have delved deeper into the different groups of classification, namely, the Linneaen system, and discovered which species have more in common than we first thought. 


Snow Day Music!

On Friday 2 March, a few of us made the trek through the snow and enjoyed a fun day of art, music and creative activities. Here's a song Mottled Owls wrote (adapted from another song) and learned to play on ukulele and glockenspiel in 20 minutes! We had a lot of fun composing, practising and performing to all the classes in the school.
