Year 2

 

Spring Term

This term the children in Year 2 will each be doing their own class assemblies.  Our focus in Religion will be “Good News”.  We will be learning more about how Jesus is an example for us.  In the second half term we will learn all about the Mass.  We will get the chance to visit St. Ann’s church and lead a Mass which parents are welcome to attend.

In Geography we will be looking at the United Kingdom.  We will learn about some major cities and have chance to talk about places we have visited.  In the second half term, we will be looking at “Locations” around the world.    We will be learning about which locations are hot and which are cold as well as what it is like in these locations.

Our Science topic is Plants.  Since it is the season of Spring, we will be learning about what plants need to grow healthy and strong.  Following on from this we will be looking at “Animals” and look forward to the arrival of the “chicks” in school.  We will also have the chance to be a scientist again and carry out our own investigations.

In the Art lessons we will be looking to improve our drawing skills and we will also have the opportunity to design and make our own tile using clay.

We look forward to learning about programming and creating our own simple animations as we do our next ICT topic entitled, “iProgram”  We will also be developing our basic skills when using the laptops.
