Year 2

Summer term

Nocturnal animals come to visit

This week Lyndsay from Animals Take Over came into school to show us some of her nocturnal animals. We met a millipede, a ferret, a tree frog, a field mouse, a scorpion, a tarantula and an owl. The children were very excited and also very brave, stroking and holding some of the animals.

This half term in year 2 we will be learning all about nocturnal animals. In our English lessons we are reading 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson and we will be writing our own stories about another nocturnal animal.

In our topic lessons this half term we will be researching nocturnal animals and writing an information book about an animal of our choice. On the 10th May, in the afternoon, a lady from 'Animals Take Over' is bringing some nocturnal animals into school for us to look at.

We have learned about the Great Fire of London. We made models of houses and then we burned them down on the playground to re-enact the fire.
