Welcome to Year 2
During the spring term, we have been immersed in our Indian Spice topic looking at the natural and physical features, Indian animals and culture. The children enjoyed sharing Indian folk tales by acting out, retelling and writing up these stories in best. As part of the topic we learnt traditional Bhangra style dancing and Bollywood dancing too. We've learnt about printing comparing English designers and Indian printing methods.
This half term our topic is 'The Home front', and we are finding out what life was like for people during World War 2, especially for Evacuees. We will be exploring rationing, dig for victory and women on the home front. In mathematics we are focusing on fractions, multiplication and division and consolidating all our prior learning. In English we are developing a deeper understanding about poetry, looking at the imagery and rich vocabulary used. Furthermore, we are developing our poetry skills using the Fantastic lenses and widening our vocabulary. P.E. we are continuing with our gymnastics and learning dancing from the 1940s.
We have started planning and creating for our Stories4schools book. This year the stories are inspired by European Traditional folk tales and Year 2's country is Hungary.
Thank you for all the support so far and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
