Living Things & Their Habitats, Animals Including Humans
As part of our Science work we will be learning all about how some things are living, some are dead and how some have never been alive. We will then progress on to finding out about how we know things are alive and what all living things need to be able to do. Hopefully, 'Mrs Gren' will help us to remember the seven life processes.
We will also be learning about how animals, including humans grow throughout their lives and look after their young.
We will finish our Science learning by participating in a Creepy Crawly Science workshop in school in April.
A Contrasting Locality - Zambia
We will be working on comparing where we live with a village in Zambia called Mugurameno.
We will be learning about their culture and lifestyle and how they use their local area to help them survive.
Our Class Novel
This half term we will be reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl.
Year 2 so far...
Communication via Class Dojo
Please ensure that if your child is a member of Year 2 that you have joined us on Class Dojo where I will keep you up to date with our latest adventures, send reminders and share key information throughout the year. You will also be able to contact me via this platform if required also.
