Autumn Term 2022

Welcome back everyone!

We are looking forward to seeing you all in September to continue your learning journey in Year 2. This year we will work together collaboratively as a class to learn new and exciting topics.



We will start the year developing our writing skills by exploring a fascinating book called 'Africa, Amazing Africa' by Atinuke. The most exciting thing is that we will be exploring this book as a whole school so children can share their learning with other year groups.


In science we will begin the year investigating materials by asking questions, recording information, looking at grouping and understanding how materials are made and the process of making a material.



In year 2, we will be deepening our understanding on The Great Fire of London using our learning from Year 1. We will investigate the effect of the fire on people’s daily lives, find evidence on how the fire stopped and debate if all primary evidence of the fire were destroyed.



This term we will be looking at the 7 continents and 5 oceans and making links to English when learning about the continent Africa. In addition to this, we will look at the continent Europe and learn about the physical and human features of England.



In Art we will look at the art work produced by Claude Monet focusing on his style of skills and how he developed his art work throughout his life time.



We will start our learning journey understanding the religions Christianity and Islam. We will then make comparisons of these religions and look at the similarities and differences.
