  • This Term's Learning

    In Year 2 our topic is all about the fantastic world of dinosaurs! Our topic has already started by the children thinking about what they already know about dinosaurs and writing some questions about what they would like to find out. In Science we will be focusing on animals, including humans and how they survive, we will also explore things that are living, once lived and dead. The children will learn about the job of a paleontologist and become experts making their own dinosaur fossils. The children will be learning about the two artists Andy Warlol and Gaudi and creating their dinosaur art work linked to these inspirational artists. In Design and Technology the children will enjoy but be challenged to make their own moving Jurassic park moving vehicle. Through all these engaging and fun activities we will be of course researching different dinosaurs and gathering  important information about how dinosaurs became extinct.
