Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2 we have our Class Teacher Miss Smith and our Teaching Assistants Miss Ruddick and Miss Goodchild. We're also very lucky to have Mrs McKeown teaching us one afternoon a week too.
We're also lucky to have Mr Peake with us from the University of Brighton.
In our topic ‘China’ we will be finding out about the geography of China and learning about the food Chinese people eat. Later on, we will be cooking some of our own traditional Chinese food!
We will be talking about...
Where in the world is China?
Is China a bigger country than England?
How many people live in China and how many people live in England?
How are the cities different to the countryside in China?
How we can help look after the environment?
What food do people who live in China eat?
How can we make Chinese inspired music?
How can we create exciting writing about what we have learned?
Here is the topic plan and the overview of learning for this half term.
Play these games at home to help children to master what we are learning in class:
