Welcome to the Year 2 Page

Our topic for the Summer Term is On the High Seas – Pirates.

We will start with the children attending researching facts about pirates using non fiction books and the internet. In Maths we will be learning about positional language and compass direction and telling the time. In ICT we will be learning how to use code to make a character on the chrome books. In Geography (continents & oceans of the world; maps, symbols and keys;  local area fieldwork skills – burying/finding treasure), History (ways of life for people in the past – What did it mean to be a pirate? What was life like on board a pirate ship? What can we learn from the famous pirates Blackbeard, Anne Bonny and Captain William Kidd? Who was Sir Francis Drake?), PSHE (Pirate rules and punishments/Code of Conduct), Art (designing a sail and pirate flag), DT & Science (making a pirate puppet, investigating the best materials for a raft/sail, floating & sinking, Scurvy and healthy eating), Music (sea shanties). Please take a look at our topic overview for more details. There will be a few pirate-related homework activities coming your way to help the children prepare for their pirate days.

To enhance our topic, we will be having a Pirate day at school and a Pirate team-building day at Aylmerton Field Study Centre on Monday 22nd July, letter to follow after half term.
