In Year 2, our summer term topic is called ‘Savannah Safari’. In this topic, we will start by exploring the United Kingdom and learning about its capital cities. We will then move on to identifying the world’s seven continents and five oceans.
After this, the children will begin to focus on Kenya and learn more about its culture, traditions and landmarks.
On our ‘hook day’ the children will get a flavour of what it’s like to be in Kenya by tasting some of the foods commonly found there and by making some jewellery.
In science, the children will be carrying on from what they learnt during ‘Animal Magic’ by looking at African animals. We will be exploring different habitats and finding out how African animals obtain their food and adapt to their surroundings in order to survive.
In art and design and technology, the children will be exploring the work of African artist Joseph Thiongo. They will then create their own piece of African artwork using techniques like colour mixing and colour bleeding.
The children will also be visiting Longleat Zoo on the 27th June where they will get to see and learn more about some of the animals found in Africa.
