Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


This term our topic is 'Our World'.

In Geography we will be learning about Kenya and comparing our capital city to its capital city, Nairobi. In the second half term we will be exploring maps. We will be finding out how to use them, including using compass points, and creating our own.


We will be exploring materials in Science during the first half term. This will include looking at the properties of materials, why certain materials are used for specific products and designing experiments to test them. In the second half term we will focus on plants. We will grow our own plants and investigate what they need to survive.

In English, we will be writing adventure and fantasy stories and in Maths we will be continuing to consolidate our knowledge of the four operations and solving problems.


Our Computing topic is 'Starting Research', which will include learning how to use the internet safely to find out information and how to use programs to record and display the gathered information. 


We will be developing our drawing skills on Art and in DT we will be making plant based recipes.
