The Secret Garden!
Our Year 2 Summer term topic is...
Grow your own!
During this topic, we will be designing and creating our own ideal vegetable garden. We will also be learning about and planting a range of seeds to help us learn about the basic conditions needed for healthy growth. The life cycle of a bee will also be explored, as well as the importance they have in the garden and for the life-cycle of plants.
In geography we will also be learning about different food sources both within Europe and from the wider world, and specific seasonal foods in the UK. We will also tie links to History, learning about locally grown foods and the different types of food that have been transported thanks to travel and trade.
Our Spring term topic is...
During this topic we will be learning about the history of the moon buggy, why it is important and comparing how the designs have changed over time. We will use these designs to help us to design and create our own moon buggy. How exciting!
In English, we will be designing our own rocket and creating our own space adventure story!
In science, we will be learning about different materials and their properties and deciding which material would be the best to build a rocket out of.
This half term our guided reading session are going to be based around another Malorie Blackman book:
This term our guided reading sessions are based around this story:
Reading for pleasure!
In year 2, we place a great emphasis on reading for pleasure and are always finding any opportunities within the school day to share a range of stories and texts to help nurture a love of reading.
We love to hear about the children's favourite stories and have recently introduced a reading for pleasure book that the children can share at home.
