Our 'Explorers' topic makes sure we have an exciting start to Year 2.
We begin Year 2 being inspired by the story Journey by Aaron Becker. This story inspires our own adventure stories with some creativity needed to get our characters out of a spot of bother!
An explorers WOW day at the beginning of Term 2 helps us to get excited about our history part of this unit. In our WOW day, in addition to dressing up, we also learn about some famous explorers of the past, become an engineer and even take our first steps on the moon. We will then continue to learn about famous explorers in history.
As part of the topic we will find out about the life of Captain Scott. We use this as a stimulus for writing and will be writing a report all about Captain Scott's life.
Finally, we will also develop our fieldwork and observational skills through using directions, OS maps, atlases and globes.
