Year 2

THIS TERM AT A GLANCE - Summer Term

We are excited for our new topics this term! In the first half of the summer term our topic will be ‘All Around the World’ where we will virtually travel around the world learning as we go! Through our geography sessions, we will discover and explore the seven continents and five oceans of the world using globes and maps then go onto locate hot and cold countries. In Science we will be learning about the lifecycle of a plant and creating our own investigations to find out what plants need to be healthy. In Art we will be learning about Van Gogh and the style in which he painted before painting our own huge class picture using the techniques we have learnt about! 

In the second half of the summer term our topic will be ‘Take Flight!’ where we will spend time learning about Amelia Earheart and her amazing achievements! In Science we will be investigating seasonal changes and answering the question ‘What happens in summer?’ which will include looking at physical changes and recording observations of the weather. We shall then bring our learning about the four seasons together over the year and contrast and compare. In Design and Technology we shall investigate mechanisms and axles on vehicles before designing and creating our own!
