Year 2 2022 - 2023
Autumn 1 - Muck, mess and mixtures.
Let’s get messy. Muck and mess are good. In fact, they're marvellous. Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Pour, mix, stir, splat. Work with paint and other squelchy stuff to create a new gallery space. What will you make? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash.
Autumn 2 - Street Detectives
This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address? Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras – it’s time to start investigating.
Spring 1 - Wriggle and Crawl
Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl.
Spring 2 - Towers, tunnels and turrets
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower. Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side.
Summer - Land Ahoy!
Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a sailor’s life for me. Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world, just like Captain Cook. Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag. Search the school grounds for Captain Longbeard’s hidden treasure. There’s land ahead. Let’s get this ship to port.
