Into the Woods

In Year 2, our first topic is called ‘Into the Woods’. In this topic, the children will learn that science is all around us. They will be immersed in nature and begin to explore living things and their habitats.

On our ‘hook day’, the children will enter their new classes and discover a range of photographs of different places in the new school building. They will then be challenged to find the location of these photographs on a walk of the new school. On returning to the classroom, they will place the photographs on a large floor plan of the school.

In geography, the children will begin to develop the skill of map making using basic symbols, which they will then apply to their own maps. These skills will then be used during field work.

In art, the children will be creating pieces using items found from nature. They will have the chance to explore different materials to respond the plants around them, including observational drawings, leaf rubbings and collage.

The children will also be visiting Hillier Arboretum (date tbc) where they will have a first-hand experience of a wide variety of plants and animals.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can you help your child?

  • Reassure your child - Key Stage One is fun and everything will be ok.
  • Support your child with their homework - They will receive regular homework and may need help to begin with.  Each child will be given a reading record and these need to be in school every day.
  • Talk to us - Please let us know straight away if there is anything we need to know.
  • Work with us - If you have any problems or worries speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Hogan, and we will try our best to sort these out for you.  Only by working together can we ensure your child achieves their very best.
