 Welcome back to Term 2 of Owls class! We are covering lots of exciting topics in the run up to Christmas!

In English, we are going to be reading 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'; a story about four siblings that whilst playing, find a wardrobe that lands them in a mystical place called Narnia and basing our pieces of writing off this. We will be exploring play scripts, free verse poetry, instructions and recounts. 

In Maths, we will be looking at multiplication and exploring our times tables up to 12x12, factor pairs and multiplying using the formal written method and beginning to look at integer scaling problems. We will then move onto measurement, where we will be converting, estimating, comparing and calculating between different units of measure and finding perimeter and area of shapes. Finally, we will begin looking at properties of Shape by comparing and classifying geometric shapes, identifying angles and lines of symmetry.

In Topic, we will continue our Settlement topic, focusing on the Viking invasions of Britain and how this affected us. We will be identifying these events on a timeline before exploring our similarities and differences between how the Vikings lived their lives. 

In Science, we will begin looking at our new topic of 'Animals including Humans'. We will be looking at the functions of our own teeth and comparing this with animals, considering our diet compared with herbivores and carnivores. We will be exploring the digestive system of humans and looking at the food chain of animals. 

In RE, we will be exploring "Why People Pray", considering what it means to pray, why people do it and how prayer differs across different religions. 

PE sessions will continue to be on a Monday afternoon and swimming on Friday afternoons. Please ensure PE kits and swimming kits are brought into school on those days. The class will need kit suitable for indoor and outdoor PE. OWL FACTS
