What’s happening outside?

Written by  on Monday, 01 June 2015.

This half term, Year 2 have been learning about wildlife, their habitats and their eating habits. We have become very knowledgeable about macro- and micro- habitats, food chains, carnivores, omnivores and herbivores, predators and prey. We have used this knowledge in our art; painting Rousseau inspired watercolours.

In literacy we created non-chronological reports all about nocturnal animals. We wrote them up as booklets using skills learnt in computing to design, print and save the front cover. Then during book week we shared our knowledge with Pre-School and Year 1 – teaching them lots of facts about nocturnal animals.

To round off the topic we had a fantastic visit from the Raptor Foundation, about which Daisy and Josiah wrote a great report :

            Today the Raptor Foundation came to visit Year 2. They brought an eagle, a hawk, a tawny owl, a long-eared owl and an eagle owl. We got to stroke every owl. They were all very soft and cuddly! We sat in a circle around the birds; they were attached to a rope, so they couldn’t fly away. We put a glove on, so we could hold them. We only got to hold 1 bird and that was the barn owl. We learnt facts about them and what they eat.
