WELCOME TO YEAR 2!
Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 2.
Our cross curricular theme this term is ‘To the Edge of the World’ as detailed on the curriculum poster below. It has a strong historical focus. The key question we will be considering throughout the term is ‘What does it mean to have courage?’ Children will consider this when they learn about the lives of significant individuals from history as well as considering this question in relation to their own lives. Children will learn about and compare the lives of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong - two well-known explorers who lived in very different times. Children will also consider the contribution of Mae Jemison to modern day space travel. They will learn about Ernest Shackleton when studying our science unit on ‘Animals Including Humans’ and will learn about survival in cold environments.
Look back at Autumn 2021 in Year 2...
We love poetry in Year 2 and have had a brilliant time studying and being inspired by poems written by some great British poets including Michael Rosen, A A Milne and Christina Rosetti.
We also were inspired by Roger McGough's Sound Collecter poem on National Poetry Day and wrote and performed a class poem called 'The Sound Collecter at School'.
We have been having so much fun in our poetry work where we are studying poetry by some of our great British poets. Here are our performances of 'I’m Just Going Out’ by Michael Rosen.
