Let's all go on Safari!
This half term, we will be finding out all about Africa. We will be using our skills as geographers to look at atlases and maps to locate Africa. We will be comparing the human and physical geographical features between Farnborough and Kenya. As scientists we will be looking at animals that live in Africa and the different food chains within Africa.
In English we will be reading different stories including Meerkat Mail and Amazing Grace to create our own story and letters of persuasion.
Please take a look at our half termly overview below to find out more about what we will be learning.
Week 3 - 23/09/2022
This week Year 2 were rather surprised to learn that Sunny the meerkat was looking for a new home and had been on an adventure around our school! He ate bananas in the kitchen, played on the playground equipment and even took a stroll into Mrs Cave's office! We wrote our own stories about Sunny's adventures at Farnborough Grange.
We have also been learning about the geography of Kenya. We found Kenya on a map, sorted physical and human features of Kenya and talked about how life might be different in Kenya to the United Kingdom.
Week 2: 16/09/2022
What another exciting week we have had this week! The children loved taking part in Roald Dahl day on Tuesday. We had lots of fun making our very own medicines, just like George in 'George's Marvellous Medicine'.
Week 1: 09/09/2022
We have had a super first week in Year 2. We started our week by going on safari and making our own safari buggies! We have enjoyed reading the story of Meerkat Mail and have begun to retell the story.
