Year 2

Welcome back to a very exciting term in Y2!

This term we are looking forward to learning about The Great Fire of London and learning about the capital cities of the UK – hopefully with the help of Paddington and his postcards. We also can’t wait to  explore our local area and the type of place we live using The Jolly Postman and his fairy tale friends to support us doing this. Once we understand the geography of our local area, we will be investigating the history of St Mary’s church, the castle and Cathedral.

In art, our focus artist is Kandinsky. We will be using his work to explore how he uses colour, texture and shape to create mood and to ask our own questions to delve deeper in to his Winter Landscape painting. We will then be applying the skills he used to create our own artwork with texture, colour and shape.

Design and technology focuses on our simple skills: measuring, cutting, joining and drawing, so that we can apply these skills confidently later in the year.

We are also extremely excited to be starting our new music programme: Charanga! We start with a friendship focus, learning  the key vocab we need as musicians and build up to our own performance of the friendship song…hopefully with some instruments as well as our voices.

We are excited to kick-start our science with a visit from Zoolab. They will be showing us creatures to help with our learning about habitats and food chains. Let’s hope they don’t bring in any animals that prey on 6 and 7 year olds.  

We will be very busy with all of our different learning hats on, so keep checking on twitter to see what we are up to!

Spring Term

This term in Y2 we are exploring more in our local area. We are looking at the history of St Mary’s Church, the castle and the cathedral in history and how Welton has changed over time in geography. Moving on from this, we will be exploring the changes in living memory – so lots of home collaboration coming your way! 

Science is an exciting focus this term with us learning about life cycles and what animals need to stay alive.  As the weather warms up, we will link back to our habitats from last term and see these factors within our school grounds, making comparisons to habitats in winter. 

Art and DT are also very exciting. We are going to be using iPads to create digital art as well as exploring levers to make toys in DT. 

In RE we are broadening our study to look at Thankfulness across different religions. So the children will be able to tell you what this looks like in Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism. They will also begin to reflect on their own beliefs and whether you even need to follow a religion in order to show this value. 

As always, we are trying to link our writing to our hands on experiences so we will be applying our poetry skills to our local area, creating fact-files about animals in science, building up information texts in history and writing instructions on how to make our toys from DT.
