Autumn Term 1 – Heroism 

Our theme this term is How to be a Hero‘ and as Year 2 begins we will be meeting some scary pirate dinosaurs and a brave boy named Flinn!. We will learn about great women who have changed History by standing up for what is right, and follow the adventures of a certain fantastic Mr Fox as he uses daring to outwit his enemies and save his friends. Through our theme, we will consider what real heroism looks like and how each of us can be a hero. In addition, we will be travelling on an adventure to Grandad’s Island’ and using beautifully illustrated Map book and google expeditions, learning more about the world around us.  

Our bookshelf this term will inspire our learning across the curriculum. In English, we will be writing exciting character descriptionsretelling and creating our own stories. We will explore the continents and oceans of the world in geography and consider where our own adventure island may be. Our Science topic Animals including Humans will take inspiration from the jungle in Grandad’s Island so we can learn about different animals, their habitats and what they need to survive, as well as the impact of global warming around the world, while in History, we will learn how heroic individuals are an inspiration to others.  

There will be lots of exciting learning in Year 2 this term, so please visit our blog or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with everything we get up to!
