Year 2 Autumn 1 picture

 

Let us head inside the castle walls and travel back in time to find out what life was like for kings, queens, peasants and servants in our first topic ‘Towers, Turrets and Tiaras!’ Meet ‘Rapunzel’ who lives in a tall, tall tower and the wicked witch who locks her away there.  Let us get busy building and designing our own forts and castles. How tall will they be? What will they be made from? What defences should they have? Lots of royal fun to be had!

 

Autumn 2  

Lady with the Lamp

Florence nightingale is famous for the work she did during the Crimean War, where she nursed soldiers back to health at all times of the day. We will take a look through history, to see how Florence changed the face of nursing from mainly an untrained profession to a highly skilled and well respected profession with very important responsibilities.

 

Spring 1  

Hakuna Matata

Hakuna Matata…it means no worries for the rest of your days! This half term we will be going on an African adventure to Kenya! Can you find Africa and Kenya on a map? Let’s look at how Kenya compares to England. What animals live there? What’s the weather like? What food grows there? Let’s find out more about Lila and the Secret of Rain by reading and writing about this African story. Wow! Just look at some of the colourful patterns, jewellery and masks some of the men and women in African tribes wear. Let’s sing and play the drums to some music just like the Masai!

Take a stroll outside and smell the beautiful spring flowers because it’s the start of our topic ‘The Scented Garden!’ It’s all about plants and seeds this term and how they grow! Help Jack grow his beanstalk! Plant a bean seed and watch it grow! What conditions will it need? Take in the scent of the herbs we grow and use them in some cooking!

Have you ever wondered about the history of our home town, Merstham? Have you ever walked around and actually looked at the features of our beautiful village? In this topic, we will look at our local environment and practise our map skills. We will also take a look at the rich history of our local area and how it has changed over time.

It’s finally time to visit the beach and feel the sand in our toes...we’re going to become beachcombers! Let’s explore the rock pools! What will we find? What sort of habitats do the creatures live in? We will have lots of fun inventing our own rock pool homes for many creatures too! Let’s take ‘Traction Man’ on an adventure to the beach! What trouble will he find himself in? Buckets and spades here we come!
