Dormice (Year 2 AS)

7.6.2021

Welcome back, Dormice!

Welcome back, Dormice! I hope you and all of your families have had a lovely, sunny half-term break and are ready to get back learning for our final half-term of the year!

Our Summer 2 topic is ‘Save the Rainforest!’. We will be reading books such as The Journey and The Hodgeheg and our writing will focus on leaflets, non-chronological reports and letters, with a lot of persuasion! In Maths, we will focus on the topics: Time, Mass, Volume/ Capacity and Temperature as well as continue to practice and embed number fluency such as our number bonds and times tables. In Topic, this half-term will include opportunities in Science to learn about animal and plant life-cycles, animal offspring and look at the creatures and plants of the Rainforest as we compare and contrast Borneo with Bracknell in Geography. From here, our Art will link to artists such as Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural objects in collages and we will explore significant people from our living memory such as the amazing David Attenborough. In RE, we will explore the question: ‘How should you spend the weekend?' as we compare weekend traditions from the Jewish and Christian faiths. In PSHCE & RSE, we will explore Safety and My Changing Body. 

As before, we will continue to consolidate our previous learning and making sure the children's health and wellbeing is of paramount importance. Therefore, we may still revisit many areas of the Year 1 and 2 curriculum, as part of our Phoenix curriculum, to make sure we are all 'Stronger, Smarter and More Powerful' in our life and learning.
