As always we will continue working on:
Science - Let it grow
Plants may grow from either seeds or bulbs. These then germinate and grow into seedlings which then continue to grow into mature plants. These mature plants may have flowers which then develop into seeds, berries, fruits etc. Seeds and bulbs need to be planted outside at particular times of year and they will germinate and grow at different rates. Some plants are better suited to growing in full sun and some grow better in partial or full shade. Plants also need different amounts of water and space to grow well and stay healthy.
We will be looking at the timeline events of The Great Fire of London, the conditions that caused the fire and changes that came about as a result of it. We will develop our skills in asking and finding answers to questions and working as a team. Year 2 will also gain an understanding of chronology.
To find out more about the Great Fire of London, you could visit your local library or have a look at the following websites:
We will be learning about the celebration of Sukkot for Jews. We will make comparisons between Sukkot and Harvest festival celebrations and suggest our own Thanksgiving ideas. We will also be learning about Buddhism and will be reading the book Prince Siddhartha and the Swan. We will focus on who Siddhartha was and the circumstances that led to him becoming Buddha and achieving enlightenment.
Art/Design & Technology
We will be reading the book The Great Fire of London. We will be building a 3D replica of the great fire. We are going to get creative and make wooden stick pictures using tissue paper!
The children will use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination. We will also be using school iPads to research pictures and information about the fire in 1666.
Year 2 will be focusing on dance. Children will explore a variety of different dance skills and learn how to control body movements and co-ordination through games and dance routines.
This term, children will learn about bullying- through anti-bullying week, feelings and empathy. Children are encouraged to share their feelings and to understand how others may feel. Activities that help team-building, encourage children to build bonds and therefore, allow children to have empathy for one another.
