KEY DAYS 

 

Every other half term class 2 take part in Forest school on a Wednesday afternoon. They are given spellings on a Friday to be tested the following Friday . Expectation for reading is little and often at least five times a week . PE will be every Friday morning .

 

In Year 2 we are focusing on becoming more independent both in and out of the classroom. This will allow us to take ownership of our learning and development and prepare us for Key Stage 2. Working hard, being resourceful and trying our best will help us develop as confident and positive learners.

Remember, it's ok to make mistakes, we learn from them!

TOPIC OVERVIEW FOR THE YEAR:

 

London’s Burning

This topic looks at the events of the Great Fire of London in 1666. History, Geography, D.T. and Art will all be taught through this topic. 

The children will learn about this important event in history and the impact it had on London. They will look in detail at Samuel Pepys’ diaries and investigate the reasons the fire spread so rapidly.

Children will develop their research skills using books, the Internet, artefacts and pictures.

 

Indian Spice

We will be learning all about India. Where is it? What languages do they speak there? How big is it? What sorts of foods do they eat? How far away is it from the UK? What is the weather like?

The children will make comparisons between Droitwich and an Indian town; London and New Delhi.  They will also find out about wildlife in India, listen to traditional Bhangra music, cook some Indian food and create Rangoli patterns.

 

Pioneers

We will be learning about people in the past, with pioneering ideas, inventions and reforms, and their impact on the world we live in today. The fact that people can change the environment we live in by inventing new machines and processes will be explored through this topic.

 

The Home Front

We will study events within World War Two and how the war affected children and people at home. We will explore what life was like during World War Two, with a particular focus on evacuees, and explain what happened to these children. Maps will be used to show the locations of where evacuees were sent and our children will be given the opportunity to become an evacuee for the day.
 

Key Days

 

Reading: Children take part in Guided Reading activities and should be encouraged to read as much as possible at home, aloud to an adult.

 

Homework: Spelling homework is given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday.
