Y2 Writing- The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark

By 23/01/2024English, Year 2

Year 2 have loved reading books by our author of Autumn term Jill Tomlinson, including The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We used this book as a starting point for writing our own reports about owls. First, we found out lots of information about owls including what they look like, what they eat and what they do. Children were very adept at using scientific language in their reports and they included lots of interesting facts. To accompany our writing, we sketched our own owls based on the images from the story. We used skills learnt in our art lessons and our “pencil dictionaries” to add different patterns to our owls. The children worked extremely hard on their final pieces and I am sure you will agree that the end result is amazing!
