A Drop in the Ocean Summer Term

For the summer term the Year 2 topic is A Drop in the Ocean. The children will be finding out about the history of the seaside as well as researching different sea creatures and creating amazing information posters. At home, the children have created some fantastic model lighthouses which are proudly on display in the KS1 library area for everyone to enjoy. In science, they will be learning all about plants, including going on a scavenger hunt and learning how seeds germinate by growing their own flowers.  This term the children will start swimming lessons and build their confidence in the water. As well as all of this, Year 2 will have the opportunity to take part in some fantastic Forest School sessions.

Inventors and Pioneers Spring Term

This term, as part of our ‘Inventors and Pioneers’ topic, Year 2 will be studying a range of historical figures, including Alexander Graham-Bell, Pablo Picasso and Amelia Earheart.  We also look at inventions throughout the ages, such as the telephone, and the children create and pitch their own ideas to ‘Alexis Switch’ for a new type of robot!  The term culminates with the children following instructions on how to make a ‘Dippydocus’ (a newly invented dinosaur) egg!

Fire and Ice Autumn Term
The Year 2 children have already created the WOW factor in our learning environment with their art and information posters! This term in Fire and Ice, they will first learn about the historical events of the Great Fire of London, using drama and written work to create story booklets and bring them to life. There will be a Year 2 ‘Bakers Day’ and children will work in teams to make and bake their own delicious bread rolls. After half-term, in our ICE topic and related science work, the children will learn about how animals are adapted to life in cold habitats and create snowy scenes in their artwork.
