In this half term the children will be continuing their investigation into the different climates and reaches of our Planet. Along side our Science topic of animals and their habitats, we will be researching facts for writing fact files. At the end of our topic we will be sharing what we have learned with year 1 ready for their Amazing Animals topic. Using the fictional story "There's a Rangtang in my bedroom" and non-fiction texts on animals we will be writing a sequence of sentences using question marks, conjunctions and adjectives to build our fact files. In Math's we'll be taking what we learnt in year 1 and applying it to numbers to 100 using place value, addition and subtraction.
In Geography we'll be exploring the rainforests of Madagascar and the Amazon to understand why they are called rainforests and the different animals that live there. We'll also be comparing physical and human features of Popley to the Rainforests to understand the differences and similarities.
In Art we'll be exploring the works of Henri Rousseau and his beautiful drawings of animals in the jungle. Did you know Rousseau never visited a jungle and used books to inspire his art?
In Jigsaw we'll be exploring "Being me in Our World", thinking about the rights and responsibilities we have and thinking about our learning charter for year 2. We'll be thinking about applying an I can do it attitude to our learning through Trickbox.
