Year 2 2020 - 2021

Miss Garvey

Land Ahoy! 

Our first theme for this year is Land Ahoy! The children are going to be learning all about different everyday materials and identifying their uses. They will take part in experiments to test out the suitability of materials by observing which ones float and sink and which materials are absorbent or waterproof. From this, they will design and create their own boat that meets a certain criteria. 

The children will also use atlases and their own research to identify and label the continents and oceans of the world. They will learn about aerial view maps and 'keys' and from their learning, they will devise their own pirate map accompanied with a key. 

In English, the children are going to make a 'Pirate Grog Smoothie'. Once they have worked as a team to create it they will plan and write a set of instructions on how to make the smoothie. Later on in the half term, the children will re-tell the story of 'Captain Beastlie's Pirate Party'. 

It is going to be a very exciting first half term in Year 2 and we can't wait!
