In Year 2 we begin by taking a fantastic trip to ‘Lively London!’ We will learn about the Great Fire of London and how London has developed since. We will be focusing on the story of Fire Cat by Pippa Goodhart which follows a young boy caught up in the drama of the fire itself. We will also be creating our own diary in the style of Samuel Pepys. In Maths we will be looking at using number in real-life contexts as we weigh and measure as we create our own bread.
During the Spring term we will become intrepid explorers and we will travel off into the wild blue yonder! We will be looking at a range of information books linked to many famous explorers and creating our own guide to a successful expedition! In Maths we will be doing some natural recording and counting as we carry out a nature study at Claybury Forest.
In the Summer term we will visit the sensational seaside where we will learn about the seaside, past and present. We will look at poems linked to the seaside and compose our own as we explore the shores of Southend. We will be learning about play-scripts as we create and perform our own Punch and Judy shows.
