Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to our class page. You can find out what we are learning about over the next half term, for more information on our day-to-day learning please visit our class dojo page.
Our topic for this half term is:
This half term we will be learning about one of our favourite stories "The Gruffalo". As part of our Science work we will delve into this fun-filled topic by exploring a variety of plants and trees, discussing habitats and whether things are alive, dead or never been alive. As a class we will identify how living things are suited to their habitats and how animals survive by looking into simple food chains.
During our topic lessons we will learn how to use compass directions and locational language in order to create a forest map with grid references. We’ll create printing tools to identify different characters footsteps and will learn to collage and create moving parts to help tell the story. Our class will also take part in a Gruffalo tea party with the children creating their own plates of delicious food. During this tea party the children will have the opportunity to showcases the work they have created around during this topic.
In PE the children will re-enact the story through dance investigating movements, shapes, pathways, levels and creating and performing for others.
Our ICT topic is e-safety and the children will become familiar with our e-safety rules and how to stay safe whilst accessing ICT.
Through R.E will see the children investigating Churches and asking questions e.g. In what ways is a church important to believers?
The children will investigate sounds in Music, they'll learn to make short musical patterns, make compositions using symbols, take part in singing and use tuned and untuned instruments.
We cannot wait to get started!
