Barn Owls - Year 2


Heroes and villains

In Barn Owl Class we are very excited about our new topic Heroes and Villains. The focus of the first half term is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. The children were very excited to discover mysterious wreckage on the playground, which led us into the story.

In English we will be using Iron Man as our text, developing our character descriptions writing. We will be using precise nouns and interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

In Maths we will be continuing with multiplication and division before moving onto statistics. Later on the children will be consolidating their knowledge of properties of 2d and 3d shape.

Our Science topic is Animals, including humans. This will include lifecycles, what animals need to survive and classifying whether something is dead, alive or has never been alive.
