To link in with our global theme for the Spring term, ‘SAVING OUR ENVIRONMENT’, Year 2 are getting stuck into their environment topic in science. In upcoming lessons, children will think about:

  • reducing, reusing and recycling
  • how to save water
  • climate change
  • saving energy
  • forest animals
  • endangered animals

In our 'Uses of Every Day Materials' topic we looked at the properties of different materials then investigated which one would make the best roof for our Lego houses.

During our 'Living Things and Their Habitats' topic we went on an exciting trip to Conkers which provided hands-on experiences so children could explore the topic in greater depth.

We started the year by thinking about GOD and where GOD is found. Children spent some time painting their own ideas...

During the spring term, Year 2 study Islam in more detail, looking at Mosques as sacred places.
