Spring 1

This half term, we are travelling back in time to the 1600's for our topic, Bright Lights, Big City. First of all, we will be exploring the Bubonic Plague and making comparisons to the current Coronavirus Pandemic. Following this, we will be learning about the Great Fire of London, how it started, what happened and how it was eventually put out. We will be welcoming the Freshwater Theatre Company in to experience first hand what life was like during the Great Fire. We will also be looking at the lives of Samuel Pepys and Sir Christopher Wren and why they were important. In maths, we will be looking at money, multiplication and division while continuing to develop our fluency in Mastery Maths and improving our timestables using TimesTables Rockstars.


In Year 2 our first topic is called, Take off around the world. Each week, we will travel around the world exploring a different continent and the surrounding oceans. We will develop our writing skills using full stops, finger spaces, capital letters and coordinating conjunctions. We will be developing our writing across all of the curriculum subject areas. As we journey around the world, we will become scientists as we discover animals in their habitats and become artists as we design and make African inspired prints. Also, we will become historians as we find out about the lives of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and compare Captain Scott's famous Antarctic expedition with modern day explorer Felicity Aston. 

In maths, we are learning about place value, addition and subtraction, while developing our fluency in Mastery Maths every morning.
