Year 2: 2P
Your Teaching Team are Mrs Pow and Mrs Hambly.
(Miss Wylie teaches music on a Monday and Mrs Lynn teaches RE on a Thursday)
This half term's topic is........
Our Summer 2 topic is 'Street Detectives' with a history and geography focus. We will be finding out all about how Exmouth has changed over the years. We will look for historical clues and follow maps. We will go on a town trail to explore local land use and buildings. The mayor and town crier will come and talk to us about Exmouth too!
Wriggle & Crawl
Our Summer 1 topic is 'Wriggle & Crawl'. We will be heading out into the local area to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. Being scientists, we will explore life-cycles of various creepy crawlies and discover how they hunt for food and protect themselves from predators. In art we will use natural materials to create models of our favourite minibeasts. Using our class book 'James & the Giant Peach' as inspiration, we will explore movements in dance and rhythms in music.
Watch our butterfly life cycle animations
