  • This Term's Learning

    In Year 2 our topic is all about how things grow! We are going to be using our green fingers to find out through a variety of Science investigations what plants need to help them grow and be healthy. We will also by observing, naming and describing flowers and plants in our local environment. The children will have the opportunity to grow their own beans and observe the stages and changes and plant tomatoes in our Year 2 vegetable patch. Running alongside all of this, the children will learn about the natural artist Andy Goldsworthy who is a famous sculptor using natural materials. We wonder what amazing Art work Year 2 will create using natural materials in our school environment? In Design and Technology the children will be designing and making a healthy sandwich for a picnic. A very busy but fun time ahead!
