This half term, Year 2's topic is 'To the sky, space and beyond!'. In history, we will be exploring the history of flight. We will be investigating how Samuel Cody impacted flight, not only in Farnborough, but nationally and internationally too. In English, we will be using the text 'Man on the Moon: A Day in the Life of Bob' to create a travel brochure and a character description. We will then be using 'The Way Back Home' to create our very own planets and write setting descriptions of our creations. We will also be artists this half term, exploring the work of Vincent Van Gogh, before we create our own Van Gogh-inspired pieces.
This is just a taster of what we will be learning this half term. Please take a look at our curriculum overview for more information.
Week beginning 22.05.23
Imagine our surprise on Friday morning when a letter came from MI5 telling us that, after all our hard work with our Secret Agent Tasks, we had qualified as Secret Agents! The letter came with medals, certificates and a delivery of ice lollies to the school kitchen! We loved spending some time in the sun with our friends and ice lollies to celebrate all of our hard work.
We also had our last swimming lesson this week. The children have all made fantastic progress and had lots of fun.
Well done, Year 2, on such a brilliant half term. You have all worked so hard and Miss Barber and Miss Woodgate are very proud teachers! See you in a week for our final half term in Year 2!
