Spring 1:

Our Whole School Quest question is: Why is life amazing?

Our Y2 Quest question this term is: Who lives in a habitat like this?

We will be researching and learning about the 4 main habitats in the world. Pupils will get a chance to see some animals from The Desert, The Jungle, The Ocean and the Arctic when we visit Twycross Zoo. We will have a lesson with a real life Zoo Keeper and learn all about how animals change depending on where they live.

 

Autumn 2:

Our Quest question was What was it like to be a firefighter in The Great Fire of London?

We were visited by A fire engine from Stockhill Fire Station and got to look at all the equipment. We designed and built our own fire engines. We also carried out an experiment to see what the best material was to make a boat out of. During this half term we also performed out Nativity, The Prickly Hay. Everyone was wowed by our beautiful singing and acting.

 

Autumn 1:

Our Whole School Quest question is: Where are the treasures of the world?

Our Y2 Quest question this term is: What treasures does Nottingham have??

We have been finding out about countries in the United Kingdom.

We have also looked at the different Treasures that Nottingham has and compared them to the Treasures of Brazil.

We studied The River Trent and compared it with Th Amazon River.  

We also had an exciting trip to Wollaton Park in Nottingham. It was great fun to see the Stags up close.

 

 

Children have settled in really well into Y2 this half term and have made a great start to the new school year. We look forward to discussing your child's progress with you in more detail during parents evening next half term. 

 

Remember to look at the curriculum letter for parents to see all the exciting things your children have been learning each term.
