Welcome to Year 2 - Miss Cox and Mrs Bowman

WELCOME TO YEAR 2

CURRICULUM OVERVIEW - TERMS 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 2 with Miss Cox and Mrs. Bowman

What do I need to be me?

Our first topic has a strong focus on science. We are very excited to have a butterfly house in the classroom in order to observe the lifecycle of a butterfly first hand. Besides this, we will be looking at the lifecycles of other animals and considering how we, and animals, change as we get older. As part of this topic we will learn about what we need to stay healthy including diet, exercise and sleep! We will be creating a ‘Healthy Café’ where we will be creating healthy fruit kebabs.  In art we are looking at animal markings and will design, make and use printing blocks. We will also learn how to mix colours. Our work in ICT will support our design skills in art and we will also be recording the lifecycle of a butterfly using a variety of computer programmes.

Through the Keyhole

Our second topic focuses on historical investigation. The children will compare old and new objects identifying similarities and differences between each. We will learn about Hythe's history and discover the exciting events that happened on our doorstep! In science we will explore materials and their uses, looking particularly at the properties of different materials and why they are suitable for different jobs. We will be conducting simple experiments. In art we will learn to sew cross stitch embroidery using Victorian samplers as inspiration.

Flying High

Our third topic will look at the history of flight and the story of the Wright brothers. In geography we will create maps using aerial photographs and figure out directions for Father Christmas to travel to our school / home! In art we will create Christmas decorations to jazz up the classroom and your living room for the holiday season!

A double session of P.E will be taught on a Thursday and will be outside whenever possible.

Children still benefit from reading at home every night and their reading journals should be signed at least 4 times a week. Spellings will be given out on a Friday, ready to be tested the following Friday. These can be found in their green reading record.

Please could you ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled to help the children take care of their belongings.

If you do have any queries you can always contact me through the school office.
