Year 2 - Owl Class

Welcome to Owl Class!

We have 30 children in our class and our teachers are Mrs Luebcke and Mrs Daniels.  Mrs Luebcke teaches on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Daniels teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Mrs Brown is our Teaching Assistant who works with us each morning and some afternoons.

You will find everything you need to know about life in Year 2 in the documents below – the ‘Year Ahead’ Booklet, our weekly timetable, our Curriculum Overview and our topic map in addition to our current homework activities.

We will send more information home about this at the beginning of the summer term.

Autumn Term 2018

‘A Walk on the Wild Side...’ is our cross curricular theme this term and we will be travelling around the world to find out about how different animals have adapted to different habitats. We have already welcomed our first visitor into our class – Otto the Barn Owl and her handler Jenny.  This gave the children a fascinating insight into how Barn Owls survive in the wild and also in captivity.

We are all looking forward to a visit to Woburn Safari Park later this half term to learn more about different types of animals.

We are in the process of creating a role play area in the classroom which resembles an animal park/jungle area and the children will shortly be enjoying lots of imaginative adventures in there!

Our Visit to Woburn Safari Park – 17th October 2018

We had a fantastic time at Woburn Safari Park and learnt so much about animal habitats around the world and adaptation.  We were all mesmerised by the giraffes and particularly Sandy the gorgeous baby giraffe who we viewed from our coach when we went on our ‘Road Safari.’

We saw a huge variety of different animals including rhinos, lions, zebra, giraffes, sea lions, meerkats, wallabies, bears, penguins, tigers and monkeys.

We also really enjoyed our session with Emma one of the Park Rangers, who had lots of information to share with us about animal habitats and adaptation. We learnt about cheetahs and zebra and even had the opportunity to touch a Bearded Dragon lizard! Emma was very impressed with how well the children answered lots of her questions about different habitats and how different animals can adapt to suit their habitat.

Here are some photos from our adventures!
