Welcome to Year 2!
Get ready to explore the world of mini-beasts!
This half-term the children will be fully emerging themselves into our new topic which is WRIGGLE AND CRAWL. The children will be going on mini-beast hunts on the school grounds to observe the different mini-beasts they can find! We will be converting this data into tally charts and pictograms. In Science, we will also identify different mini-beasts and learn about what they need to survive and how their habitat is suited to them. Life cycles of mini-beasts are a key part of this topic! In English, the children will be writing guidebooks about how to go on a mini-beast hunt, instructions on how to look after mini-beasts, reviews about books and poems about mini-beasts! An interesting part of this topic will be ICT as the children will be making their own presentations about different mini-beasts!
What a busy half term this will be!
