WELCOME TO YEAR TWO!!
OUR YEAR TWOS ARE ENTHUSIASTIC,KIND AND DOWN TO EARTH CHILDREN!
Our topic for this half term focuses on Geography and is called an Island home. We will be looking at the Katie Morag Stories and compare the Isle of Struay which is fictional with the Isle of Coll which is where the books are set. We then make comparisons between an Island and our local area of Chobham. We will also look at maps, physical and human features and make our own holiday brochures.
The topic in science is 'Young Gardeners' where we look at seeds, plants, what they need to grow, deciduous and evergreen an what these terms mean.
The children will also have an opportunity to do some planting as well as some investigations and experiments.
The Year twos had our trip to Wisely Gardens! The children had a lot of fun and learnt a bunch of new and exciting things. Did you know we heard a 'Thrush'- its a type of bird and it makes about 3/4 bird calls each time it chirps, but you have to be really quiet or you won’t hear it!!
