Our teachers are Miss Archer & Miss Hall

Year 2 have launched into their castles topic this term starting with a dress up day! We had knights, queens, princesses and even dragons! Through our Topic we will locate castles around the world including in our own locality. We will learn about how castles have changed over time and sequence this using a timeline. We will also learn about the different roles within a castle and use role play to imagine what these we like.

This term we will begin by learning about traditional tales with a twist. We will compare Rapunzel with Rat-punzel and look at the similarities and differences before making our own changes for our own tale. In Maths we will continue to build on using different methods to solve the four operations. We will use these to solve problems and explain how we know if an answer is correct or not.

Our Science topic is Habitats. We will explore things that are living, non-living and things that have never lived. We will sort living things into their most suitable habitat and explain why it is suitable by considering the needs. We will develop ourselves as scientists by classifying, sorting and observing.
