Year 2 Topics 2016/2017
Muck, Mess and Mixtures
(Art and Design focus)
Let’s get messy! Muck and mess is good! In fact, it’s mega-marvellous!
Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods.
Pour, mix, stir splat! How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo?
Don’t worry about the mess…it’ll always wash!
Wriggle and Crawl
Grab your cot and pooter- we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt!
Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home.
Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey.
On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl!
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.
Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels just like the animals who live underground.
Finally meet the three little pigs who needs your help to build a strong fortress.
No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!
The Scented Garden
Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers.
Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things- just don’t touch!
Everything is coming up roses! Why not grow your own?
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.
Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras….it’s time to start investigating!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr..me hearties,- 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!
Thar’s land ahead, me buckos! Let’s get t’ship t’port.
