We have settled into Year 2 really well and are busy learning new things!
Our new topic is...
Jingle all the way!
In Topic we will be immersing ourselves in everything to do with festivals and celebrations! We will be learning all about the artist Raymond Briggs and creating our very own winter scene picture using his style for inspiration. We will be learning all about Diwali, Rama and Sita, Sukkot, Christmas and other festivals. Towards the end of our topic we will be looking at the properties of different materials and thinking about what materials would be best to use to create a shelter (and giving good reasons why!). We have got many exciting activities planned such as salt dough creations, using our DT skills to make a waterproof shelter, art and craft activities and learning about the North and south Poles in Geography!
In English we will be focusing on the book 'Here we are' by Oliver Jeffers. This books is all about the world we live in and the people and animals we share our planet with.
In Maths we will be learning about money and using our skills of addition and subtraction with money. Also, we will be having a go at multiplication and learning about statistics.
