Year 2 Curriculum - Spring Term 2
To practice the above at home you can visit this website:
We will learn to ask relevant questions to extend their understanding and knowledge using relevant strategies to build their vocabulary. We will use descriptive language to describe an African Safari using metaphors and powerful adjectives. We will learn how to write clear, factual sentences of the parts of African animals such as: giraffes, hippos etc...
We will recognise simple recurring literary language in stories and poetry. Proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation [for example, ends of sentences punctuated correctly].
Animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults.
In humans and some animals, these offspring will be young, such as babies or kittens, that grow into adults. In other animals, such as chickens or insects, there may be eggs laid that hatch to young or other stages which then grow to adults. The young of some animals do not look like their parents e.g. tadpoles.
All animals, including humans, have the basic needs of feeding, drinking and breathing that must be satisfied in order to survive. To grow into healthy adults, they also need the right amounts and types of food and exercise. Good hygiene is also important in preventing infections and illnesses.
In Geography we will be learning about continents and oceans. We will also be exploring the world using an atlas and maps around our local area. Through this we will recognise landmarks specific to the UK and research others around the world.
By the end of this unit children will be able to locate and name the continents and oceans. They will know locational and directional language (North, East, South, West and near, far, left, right) to describe locations on a map. Also, they will recognise iconic landmarks in the UK and around the world.
This term we will examine different forms of transport. Understand how transport has changed over time, and begin to develop a chronology of automobiles, trains and space travel. Go on a trip to a museum or on a rail, canal boat or ferry ride. Explore the history of space travel and significant events.
This term we will focus on the book of Genesis opens the Hebrew Bible with the story of creation. God, a spirit hovering over an empty, watery void, creates the world by speaking into the darkness and calling into being light, sky, land, vegetation, and living creatures over the course of six days.
This term we will be learning about African Textiles which will enable children to have an introduction to textile art on both a practical level and within a historical and multicultural context.
During this term, we will fully immerse the children in the experience by teaching them some of the different traditional techniques used in this ancient art form. The children can create individual pieces to take home or combine them into a wall hanging to display at your school.
This term our focus is ‘Dance’ and ‘Football’
In football, the children will be taught to apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending. In Dance, they will be taught to perform dances using a range of movement patterns. They will compare their performances and discuss what they can do to improve.
Art/Design & Technology
In Art we will be looking at the African artist Okore Nnenna. We will look at repeated patterns and the children will go on to design and print their own patterns inspired by the African art they have seen.
