Year 2 Information Meeting For Parents
As we are unable to hold our usual face to face meetings to welcome you to your child's new year group, please head to the Video Centre (See Home Learning) to find an information video which I have recorded for you to watch instead.
Our Autumn Term is packed full of exciting topics. Every year, one of the children’s favourites is our History Unit on The Great Fire of London where we investigate the facts surrounding this dramatic event. Our Design Technology project invites the children to design and make a puppet that could accompany a children’s story book. In Science we will be learning about how to take care of ourselves and we’ll investigate different materials and how they can be changed by bending, twisting, squashing and stretching them. In our computing lessons, we learn how to send emails, carry out Internet research to learn about the history of the World Wide Web and produce a PowerPoint to share our learning. Fieldwork skills are the focus of our Geography work this term and we get plenty of opportunities to draw different types of map. In art, we look at how William Morris created nature-themed patterns we use these ideas to create our own collage patterns. We will learn more about pitch in our Music Lessons when we will learn to sing and play along to various traditional songs and rounds. Our PE topics will focus on Fitness, Invasion Games and Dance.
RE in the Autumn Term will begin by exploring Christian Leaders. Children will think about who teaches them right from wrong and learn about the role of a vicar. We look in detail at how Jesus used parables to teach people about how to live their lives. Later in the term we look at a number of different Christian celebrations beginning with Remembrance Sunday and ending with an in depth study of the Christmas Story.
