Our class learning will be based around pirates exploring the world and the things that they will see! We will be learning about animals and their habitats and all the different continents that pirates might visit as they sail around the world. 

Some of the main things that we will be learning about are:

  • A major focus will be Geography and will include: Maps and atlases
  • Directions and positional language
  • Our local area
  • York and other countries and cities
  • The 7 continents and 5 oceans
  • In art, we will be doing some printing
  • In RE, we will be looking at Judaism
  • In PE we will be doing both dance and learning game skills
  • In computing, we will be focusing on learning how to use the iPads and Chromebooks as well as how to use Bug Club and TT Rocks

"Continents and Oceans" by ABCmouse.com

Learn all about the continents and oceans. We have been learning this song in class!

What a busy start to Year 2! All the children have settled brilliantly and have been learning lots. We started our Geography topic by learning all about Acomb and York and have explored our local area. The open top river cruise was amazing! We will be finding out all about the continents of the world and we have started learning all about the Polar Regions which we have linked  to all the knowledge we learnt in Year 1 about the Arctic. 
We have been reading stories about Pirates, who have travelled the 7 continents, and a few of our favourites are bellow. We also loved taking part in Talk like a Pirate day!!!

We have had a wonderful half term learning all about significant people in history and how they have changed the world. First of all we learned all about Rosa Parks and how her refusing to give up her seat for a white person brought equal rights across the USA. Then we found out about Mary Anning, who was one of the first female paleontologists, and were amazed by her discoveries as well as how she survived being struck by lightening as a baby! We are currently looking at George Stephenson and how his love of engineering changed life for all of us with the invention of the Rocket. We are looking forward to seeing it for ourselves next half term at the National Railway Museum as well as learning about some living significant people. Can you guess who they might be and how they are changing the world we live in today?
