This term in Blue Class...
We have spent two weeks ‘Learning to Learn’ and now we are ready to begin our IPC topic ‘People of the Past’. This will be a journey back in time with Year 2 to find out about important or famous 'People of the Past'.
We will start by researching some famous explorers, including Edmund Hilary, Christopher Columbus and also Tom Crean who features in Chris Judge's fantastic 'The Great Explorer' book. As we become experts in 'People of the Past' we will be writing recounts and creating computer animations to tell of their amazing adventures.
In Art, the children will be creating their own portraits and studying the style of Picasso as a significant individual from the past.
In Maths, we've got a focus on numbers - reading, writing, counting, comparing, ordering and calculating too.
Our focus in P.E. is invasion games and we'll be working on our defence and attacking skills and how to apply these in different games.
