 Term 1 Topic Plan For Parents


 Term 1

Year 2 have had an exciting and busy first term.  In science we have been exploring the school grounds to find examples of things which are living, dead or have never been alive.  We looked at different habitats and micro-habitats and identified the animals and plants living there.


In music we listened to the story of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev.  We explored different rhythm patterns using body sounds and then instruments.


Who would have believed that Shrek would feature in our English lessons?  Well he did and we loved the engaging writing topic!  We also had a yummy time in English when we looked at the story of The Gingerbread Man and decorated one of the little fellows in class.


It was great to see lots of parents at the puppet making workshop.  We all enjoyed sewing and decorating our felt hand puppets.  Will any of you use them to create your own puppet show at home?
