Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 and…

Welcome to SPACE! 

In this explosively exciting half-term, we’ll be travelling TO INFINITY AND BEYOND! We’ll learn all about Space and have a chance to experience the incredible Space Dome.

We’ll be meeting some very special alien friends and finding out all about their home planet of Woolie Gazoo, as well as soaring through our own Solar System and using all of our space knowledge to create out-of-this-world planet poetry and fact files. We’ll be reading The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers and using what we’ve learned to write our own incredible space adventure stories.

We’ll use colour-mixing techniques to create our own planets in Art & Design and, in Design & Technology, we will be designing and building transportation to carry our aliens home across the harsh terrain of extra-terrestrial worlds.

In maths, we will be deepening our understanding of the number system and place value and learning about the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction.

Our Scratch programming Computing unit will help us to develop an understanding of algorithms, directional language and basic programming and we will be creating our own topic-related animations and games.

So jump on board and join us on a space adventure you’ll never forget!
