Autumn Term 2018 Welcome to Y2! We are very excited to be exploring our local area and where we fit in to the wider world. We will be learning about the UK and the oceans that surround us as well as looking at how our lifestyle compares to that of people who live in various holiday destinations. Not only this, we will be conducting fieldwork in and around the village, undertaking surveys to find out where people in our area go on holiday and why they choose the places they visit.
In English, we are very excited to be studying traditional tales and using our drama skills to retell famous stories. We are linking this to our study of Islam and how Muslims use the stories Quran to shape the lives they want to lead.
Here in Year 2 we are looking forward to learning about ‘What events shaped the world?’ as part of our History themed topic. We will be thinking about significant events from the past, the impact they’ve had on the world and how they shaped the future. During the topic we will be looking at The Great Fire of London, the first men on the moon and the Royal Wedding. At the end of term 3, we will be holding our own ‘moon party’ where we will be launching our rocket homework projects into space! Through drama and English we will be thinking about writing newspaper articles, diary entries and writing stories based on the knowledge we have learnt. It’s going to be a very exciting term.

Summer Term 2019
This term we are looking forward to learning about ‘ How are repeated patterns used in art?’ as part of our Art and DT themed topic. We will be exploring the work of William Morris and looking closely at the way in which he uses repeated patterns based on things that surround us in nature to create his fantastic art. We will be using these ideas to draw, print and paint our own art work in the style of our focus artist. During term 6, we will be creating our own moving vehicles…there may even be time for a few races out in the sunshine to see who has constructed the most successful vehicles! Through drama and English we will be thinking about writing letters, recounts and writing stories based on the knowledge we have learnt. It’s going to be another very exciting term J Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out more about what we are doing each week.
