Year 2

Our topic this half term is Castles
This half term our topic is Castles and we have so much planned!

In Literacy we are going to be looking at instructions with a dragon theme and even writing instructions for dragon soup! We will then be looking at fairytales with a focus on Beauty and the Beast, with the children writing their own fairy tale.
 In Maths we are going to be looking at place value, number sequences, telling the time to the nearest five minutes, fractions, multiplication and division problems and 3D shape.
In Science our topic is  materials. We will be looking at the purpose and function of different materials and their properties and then investigating which material would be best for a knight on a quest.
 In History we will be learning about the history of castles and who lived there.
 In RE we will be learning about Jewish family life.
 In Art we will be looking at the work of Paul Klee and creating some castles of our own inspired by his work.
In D.T. we are going to be making a jousting knight.
In Computing we are learning to be researchers.
We will also be going on a school trip to Skipton Castle this half term. There will be a letter with details nearer the time.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of
all children, and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
