SUMMER TERM 

Hold your breath because Year 2 are going deep sea diving in our new topic ‘Under the Sea’.

 

In science we will be learning how animals and plants adapt to their local environment and how feeding relationships can be affected by environmental change. As part of this, the children will study how plants and animals thrive in different habitats and how they have adapted to hostile environments. We will construct food chains and understand why species can become endangered if part of the chain is under threat. As part of our learning, the class will be visiting Marwell Zoo.

 

 In literacy we will be using the narrative ‘Flotsam’. This moving story is set on the East coast of America where a boy discovers an old fashioned camera washed up on the beach as if it were flotsam. When he develops the film inside, a new underwater world is discovered. This story has no text, so the children will write the story of Flotsam using the beautiful illustrations.

 

This half term, we will be focussing on using standard units of measurement to measure with increasing accuracy; mass; capacity and temperature. Using lots of practical equipment and hands-on activities the children will use the appropriate language to compare and order different measurements. Using practical contexts the class will also explore the language of position and direction and plan routes around the school. Rich opportunities are provided for children to work collaboratively and independently to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills.

 

Year 2 is a very exciting year, empowering and encouraging the children to take more responsibly and ownership in their learning.
