PASSPORT TO AFRICA
Welcome to Year 2!
We are looking forward to working with you all this year as we have lots of wonderful things to learn about!
Our first amazing learning challenge is entitled ‘Passport to Africa’. It a science and geography based topic. We will be focusing on the growth of mammals, life cycles and offspring in humans and African animals, asking lots of scientific questions like 'do taller people have bigger hands?' and investigating! Then we'll move on to geography; finding out where these animals live, what their habitat is like and what kind of food they eat! We'll also compare and contrast how people live differently in Africa and Europe.
In Year 2 we will develop our literacy skills throughout the year by basing our work on a range of different texts. This term's text is entitled The Hunter. This book will inspire us to write our own versions of the story and develop our vocabulary skills before writing a non-chronological report about a made up African animal!
This year we are going to continue to build upon our knowledge of reasoning and problem solving in maths.
The schedule for maths this term will be as follows;
