Welcome to Year 2!
Our topic for the Autumn Term is ‘The Gunpowder Plot’. We are learning about the foiled plan of Guy Fawkes and his gang, looking at the reasons why they wanted to kill King James I and how they were caught. We have built a model of the Houses of Parliament and are busy preparing to celebrate Bonfire Night at the school with a firework dance!
The children are thoroughly enjoying the creative curriculum, where we are able to include our topic across the timetable.
We have been studying poetry in English, devising our own ‘Colourful Wagtail Poem’, and are now exploring traditional tales using drama and roleplay to deepen our learning. Our current Class Read is The Firework Maker’s Daughter.
Our Maths learning this term will support our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
