Barn Owl - Year 2

Autumn 2

Autumn 2 Has been fantastic so far. The children have continued to grow with excitement and are completely engaged in our Famous Victorians topic. We have looked at both Florence Nightingale and more recently Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The children are looking forward to becoming engineers and building their own bridges in the next few weeks. As Christmas approaches the children are learning Christmas songs ready for their performance. We Hope to see you there.

We have a great year ahead of us, filled with lots of exciting learning opportunities. We begin our term learning all about Queen Victoria and the Victorians.

Im looking forward to getting to know you all better over the next few weeks. See you Wednesday.

What a fantastic first week back!

The children have settled well in to the routines of Year 2 and a setting a good example to the rest of the children across our school. 

This week we introduced the "The Capes of success" and the children are very excited to demonstrate fantastic learning behaviours. 

We have started to look at our topic "The young Queen Victoria"and the children are looking forward to diving into this topic further.

Its been a great couple of weeks in Barn Owl class. We have seen many capes be awarded for fantastic attitudes towards learning.

The children have enjoyed looking at Queen Victoria and her early life and even had a go at making their own regal crowns. In PE the children have started to learn a Victorian Dance and are looking forwarded to learning some more in the coming weeks. 

Well done Barn Owls for a fantastic week. 


Miss Hook 


The children have really enjoyed diving into maths this week. We have begun to look at addition and subtraction and the children are excited to continue this learning next week. 

As a class we have been practising a class poem ready for our Harvest celebration. The children have even written their own Harvest prayer.

Its has been our final week reading Oliver Twist the children have explored this story in great depth and its evident in their writing that they have enjoyed learning about this character and his friends.
