Barn Owls -- Year 2

Welcome to Barn Owl's class page!

Homework for Barn Owls

For this week's maths homework your challenge is to create a symmetrical picture or pattern using Autumnal natural materials (see picture below for an idea). I have also added the game 'Reel it in' on your ActiveLearn account. For an extra challenge try 'Cut and paste 16.10.20' below.

Symmetrical patterns using natural materials

Barn Owl's Autumn term 1 seaside homework grid

What a BRILLIANT start to the new school year we have had!


The Barn Owls have been excellent this week and I can already tell that we are going to have a fantastic school year.


I am very excited about our topic for this term which is ‘Seasides in the past’. In this topic we will be exploring the UK, features of coastal areas and we will be looking at similarities and differences between seasides in the past and present.


Useful Notices:

Please be aware that some of these notices may change in the coming weeks but I will make sure to inform you of any tweaks:

  • Homework: Below you will find a homework grid based on our topic for this term. Please choose one of these homework tasks a fortnight. Alongside this, on a Friday I will be uploading maths and spelling homework activities onto our class webpage for the week. There will be some tasks which could involve 3D models or food, please do not bring these into school but if you would like to share these with me I would love to see a photo or sketch of what has been made. Please return finished homework by the following Wednesday (Please only bring homework in on this day). I look forward to looking at and celebrating each piece of homework and will keep completed tasks at school.

I will be setting Barn Owl’s first homework pieces on Friday 11th September.


  • PE: PE this term will be on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Sykes. On a Thursday, your child will need to come into school in their PE kit. However, if the weather looks particularly wet and miserable on a PE day, please also send your child in with a change of clothes- just in case!


  • Reading: This week your child will be bringing home reading books and a reading record. We encourage you to read with your child for a short amount of time every day. At the end of the week we will collect in your child’s books and give them 3-4 more to take home for the next week. We love reading in Barn Owls and Mrs Sansom and myself will be listening to the Barn Owls read in whole class tasks, 1:1 and guided reading sessions.


I cannot wait to see what exciting, new adventures this school year brings!


Miss Robinson

This week we read the story 'The colour monster' and found natural materials to match each of the colours. We thought about how each of these colours made us feel.

Dark grey, black, dark brown
orange, red, light brown
white and light grey

In maths we made numbers up to 100 using natural objects to show tens and ones
