We enjoy a variety of topics in year 2 which involve lots of seeing, doing, experiencing and ‘getting stuck in’ with hands on learning to develop more independent thought and action.
Our Topic this half term is Castles
Throughout this half term your child will be learning all about castles. This is part of our history topic and we will be looking at the different features of a castles as well as the rooms and jobs in a castle. Your child will also have the opportunity to visit a castle on our trip to Clitheroe Castle.
In Science we are learning about
Plants and Trees
We will identify a range of different plants and trees through lots of hands on outdoor learning in our woodland habitat. The children will have the opportunity to develop their scientific knowledge by naming, sorting, planting, observing and testing.
We are looking at word processing and multimedia. The children will learn lots of new skills to use when working on the computer. Skills such as typing, editing, inserting and saving will be learnt throughout this half term.
We experiment with colour mixing and applying colours and paints in different ways. We also look at real life artists who specialise in this type of art.
In P.E we are looking at skills involved with invasion games! We will look at throwing, catching, moving, attacking and defending and game tactics.
