Long Term Plan 2017-2018

 

 

 Term 1 Topic Plan For Parents

 

Term 1

In term 1 we have been learning about our class mythical creatures.  We read the story ‘Zog’ by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler and then we wrote our own mythical creature stories based on Zog.  We explored the rhyme in the story and wrote our own funny rhyming sentences.

In science we have been learning about living things and their habitats.  We went out and about to explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead or things that have never been alive.  We also looked at the different habitats and micro-habitats found in our school grounds.

 

In PE we have started the term with yoga lessons.  We are learning lots of new balances like ‘tree pose’, ‘airplane’ and ‘boat pose’.  We have to concentrate really hard so that we don’t wobble!

We are really looking forward to International Week which is taking place during the last week of term.

 

Term 2 Topic Plan For Parents

 

 

Year 2

In term 2 we have been learning about the Great Fire of London.  We had a super time taking part in a drama workshop all about the Great Fire of London.  We spent a whole day on a design and technology project where we made Tudor houses.  We planned our designs carefully before making them and then evaluated our houses.

                                                         

In science we have been identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials for particular uses.  We went out and about to see how materials were used in and around our school.  We were brilliant scientists and carried out some tests on different materials.  We learnt how the shape of some materials can be changed by twisting, stretching, bending and squashing.  We got in a right mess making some home-made goo!

We looked at the work of the American artist Jackson Pollock.  We explored creating our own piece of artwork based on his famous drip paintings.

                    

 

In RE we have been learning about Hinduism.  We found out how Hindus worship and learnt about some of the Hindu gods and goddesses.
