Year 2 is certainly full of highlights! We begin the academic year with our Famous Victorians topic through which we incorporate historical knowledge and skills to discover how many Victorians have influenced our lives today culminating in our own Great Exhibition. We participate in a Victorian School Day which proves to be great fun despite the strict expectations! During the Spring Term, we focus on a ‘Home and Away’ theme where we compare locations of India and the UK. Following an array of map work we research the contrasting geographical features, cultural and religious practices and lifestyles. The children enjoy creating some traditional culinary delights but the real enjoyment seems to be found in the tasting! Finally in the Summer Term, the children embark upon a Seaside study finding out about creatures and locations whilst developing their field study skills by getting out and about locally and even down to sunny (hopefully!) Brighton.
