Year 2

Welcome to the Summer term!  We are so excited about our new topic because we will be learning all about Knights and Castles!

In English, we will be reading the Boy who grew Dragons by Andy Sheppard.  We will also be .  We will be using the text Quest by Aaron by Aaron Becker to write character and setting descriptions and a newspaper report,  as well as non fiction texts to  write  instructions and a non-chronological report.

In Maths, we will begin the term with fractions, before moving on to learn about tally charts and pictograms in statistics and telling the time.  In the second half of the summer term we will learn about position and direction , as well as length, height and capacity in measure.


In Science, we will be continuing to focus on plants .  What happens when they do not have the right conditions to grow and what types of plants grow in hot and cold countries.  We will be investigating whether leaves which grow at the bottom of a plant are bigger than those which grow at the top and why.  We will also be finding out about countryside habitats.

In History, we will finding out all about knights and castles including where castles were built, who lived in castles and how castles were defended.  We will be researching the different types of jobs which people had in the castles.  We will also be researching what knights did and how someone became a knight.

In Art, we will be creating a collage in the style of Megan Coyle and in DT we will be making a trebuchet from different materials.

In Art and DT, we will be creating puppets based on our real life super heroes, such as doctors and nurses.
