Our class theme this term is Mystical lands and Creatures
Year 2 will enter the magical world of fairytales. We will have a whistle stop tour of traditional fairytales for the children to capture the skills and delights of storytelling, and understand the key elements in the stories. They will develop imaginative language for the description of people and places in stories. During our D.T learning the children will become designers, creating magnificent castles fit for any fairytale land.
In R.E, we are going to be looking at Worship, Ritual and Ceremonies within Christianity with a focus on Epiphany and the Easter Story.
In the run up to Easter we will be undertaking ‘Great Egg Race’ challenges which will give us lots of opportunities to apply our science knowledge and understanding and our mathematics skills to a design technology challenge.
The values we are focusing on this term are Independence and Hospitality
We want everyone at St Thomas’ CE Primary School to have the confidence and ability to make informed choices about their learning and to recognise they are responsible for organising themselves (equipment, home-learning). We want everyone to have a go and never give up (resilience). Children will be encouraged to take an active part in their own learning and be able to discuss their preferences with both their peers and adults. We want children to love their learning, to seek out new knowledge for themselves and recognise when they are genuinely stuck and how to seek the help they need.
The Christian value we will focus on is hospitality so we will be considering the following ideas in our class:
