Geography in the Owls

Friday, May 24th, 2019

As part of our ‘We are the Future’ topic this term in the Owls, we have been learning about the different biomes of the world.

Biomes are natural areas of the Earth that have certain climates and certain types of living things (plants and animals). The plants and animals of each biome have traits that help them survive in their particular biome. Some of the major biomes are tundra, desert, taiga, rainforest, savannah and temperate deciduous forest.

We first worked in groups to create a poster for each of these biomes.

We then wrote some quiz questions for each biome we were focusing on and Miss Smith compiled these and everyone had all 30 questions to answer. From there, we went on to consolidate our learning by writing our own paragraphs about each of the biomes.

Here is some our amazing work being displayed in the corridor:




Sponsored Walk 2019

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

The whole school enjoyed the beautiful local countryside as they made their way around Avening on the sponsored walk. Everyone enjoyed the chance to be outside in the lovely weather and recognise the health benefits of different forms of exercise. It was great to see so many pupils already bringing in their sponsor money in support of FOAS.

District Sports

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

A huge ‘Well Done’ to all of the Hawks and Owls who took part in District Sports! Everyone competed against other local schools in a variety of athletic events. It was good to see everyone challenge themselves to compete with determination and respect while always aspiring to achieve a personal best. The weather was wonderful and the Sports Leaders from SWR made sure that everything ran very smoothly. Keep a look out for the results to come soon.
