Snowy Owl - Year 2


Snowy Owls Class Important Information

Autumn Term 2021

We are having a very successful start to the term, getting used to new routines and expectations. We have already been demonstrating one of the key Growth Mindset qualities in class, the 'Cape of Bravery'. Well done Snowy Owl class! I am really looking forward to being your teacher this year.

Mantle of the Expert

We will be learning about fairy tales this half-term, but with a twist! We will meet the Queen of Fairy tale Land and help her with her problem. She has been informed by her subjects that trolls are blighting the lives of her subjects. We must observe and report back the extent of this problem, so that she can decide what to do. We are the 'Scientific Expert Team'! 

Please see the planning attached below for more information about this half-term's learning.

Key Information

I look forward to sharing regular updates of your child's learning on Tapestry each week, and will be attaching home learning via Tapestry as well as this web page each Friday.  Please note that usernames are now in the back of your child's reading record for access to 'MyMaths' and Times Table Rock Stars'. 


We are very much looking forward to starting the reading game once again. Please read and sign the diaries each day, so that the children can move up our reading game in class. They will receive certificates for the first 10 reads, then 25, 50, 75, 100 etc. This is an exciting way to encourage a love of reading, and we really appreciate your support with this, thank you.


Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that earrings are taken out, or that your child can remove them independently on these days and that hair is tied back. Please can you also make sure they have the full kit in school. This includes; black/dark jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, black shorts, a green jumper and trainers. Thank you.
