Year 2

Summer Term


April marks the start of a new topic for our class - Explorers. Over the term we will learn about Ibn Battuta, Christopher Columbus, Scott of the Antarctic and Neil Armstrong. We will discover what they did to make them famous and compare them to each other, thinking about how exploring has changed over the past 800 years. Our art will take inspiration from Neil Armstrong and we will make our own spaceships.


In literacy, our main text will be The Great Explorer and we will write our own adventure stories. We will then write some discussions about the advantages and disadvantages of exploring, then finish off the half term writing information texts about imaginative plants. This work will link with our work in science where we will be learning all about plants and grow our own examples.


PE days this term will be Wednesday and Friday where will will be covering scatterball and gymnastics.
