Welcome To Year Two

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This half term our Topic is ‘Inventors and Inventions’ and focuses on History and Science. We will be investigating materials and their properties and identifying which materials objects are made from and why. In History we will be learning about significant inventors and their inventions including Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone. We will be focusing on the development of communications through history, creating our own timeline and will be working towards developing our blogging skills. The children will be writing their own posts which we will be inviting parents to respond to. We will also be reading ‘Rosie Revere Engineer’ a story that looks at a little girl who doesn’t give up and works hard to follow her dreams of becoming an inventor.

In Literacy we will be reading Fiction texts including ‘Funny Machines for George the Sheep’. We will be learning to retell the story and will eventually write our own version. We will be focusing on developing vocabulary. For our non-fiction unit we will be writing explanations based around Wallace and Gromit, exploring features and vocabulary needed for this text type.
