Year 2

Summer Term 1

Recipe or Disaster?

As Readers, we enjoyed George’s Marvellous Medicine so much last term that we are going to continue using this text to inspire our writing. We are also going to be exploring the Francesca Simon books and a range of literature to discover our own reading for pleasure.

As Writers  we are going to have fun writing creative twists to familiar stories, innovating known texts and writing informative pieces on ‘what to do if somebody takes your potion’.  

As Mathematicians  we are going to be focussing on measurement: mass, volume and capacity. We will also be using our mathematical reasoning skills to complete maths investigations linked to our science topic.

As Scientists we will be exploring the body! We will be investigating the different systems in our body and learning how to take care of ourselves.

As Historians  we will be learning about the Tudor Period, in particular Henry VIII. We will be learning about the Tudor timeline and what life was like back then.

As Artists  we will be continuing to build on our sketching skills and bringing in a range of techniques to our work.

As Geographers  we will be learning about the human and physical features on planet Earth.

As Religious Educators
  we will be learning about Hinduism, including Diwali and their worship.

As always we will be continuing to develop our personal, emotional and social skills through working in pairs, groups, activities and circle time. We will be building on our resilience and preparing ourselves for the transition into Key Stage 2.
