To love, learn and grow together
Our topic this term is
Year 2 engaged brilliantly with our last topic about the elephants of Leamington Spa and were fantastic role models during our school trip. Take a look at some of our pictures to see what we got up to!
This half term our focus is on dinosaurs! We will be learning about the three time periods within the Mesozoic era, as well as the types of dinosaurs that lived during these times. We will also be learning about how the earth has changed since the Triassic period and will re-enact this as a whole class.
In Science we will learn about the structural makeup of different types of dinosaurs, and will also categorise these into whether they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. We will also learn how fossils are formed and will carry out an investigation using different materials to replicate this process.
In Art we will be exploring different printing patterns and techniques and will then create our own printing blocks by sketching, cutting and painting dinosaur footprints.
In English we will be basing our writing on the texts, 'The Dinosaur Department Store' and 'The Girl and the Dinosaur'. We will focusing on narrative writing, as well as writing non-chronological reports about different types of dinosaurs.
In Maths we will be consolidating our multiplication and division skills, as well as work on fractions and shape. We will also continue to practise our arithmetic on a daily basis.
In RE we will be developing our understanding of Jesus' Salvation. We will also spend time exploring our new values which are Trust, in relation to Easter, and Courage, in relation to Lent.
