Year 2 Class Page
Welcome to the Wonderful Worms web page. The class teacher is Miss Broom, with Mrs Sharpe, Mrs Briggs and Miss Poole supporting as teaching assistants.
In Year 2, we will be learning all about Explorers on land, sea and in space! To begin with, we will be finding out about Captain Robert Scott and his adventures on sea. Then, we will be moving into space, finding out about the first man to land on the moon and more recent space travel. Finally, we will be learning about Christopher Columbus and his journey to find America. Our Science units will be focused on minibeasts and space. We will be learning all about different types of insects and seeing which ones we can find in our local area. Our art units will be looking at natural art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, along with an investigation into watercolours.
We also have a trip to Holdenby outdoor education centre to look forward to towards the end of our term, and an exciting final WOW to end our topic in July.
In Year 2 this term, our theme is 'Sun, Sea and Sombreros' which looks at the History and Geography of Mexico. We will be having lots of fun with Mexican festivities and Art focusing on the Horta family who make Mexican masks. We will be making our own versions of these during the term.
In our first term in year 2, we will be spending time getting to know all about Year 2 and our new classroom. The children are excited about the prospect of being an inventor and learning about others that have done the same. It is going to be a busy term with lots of new things to learn building on our work in year 1.
