Term 1

Sensational Safari

Our topic this term is ‘Sensational Safari’. We will be learning about the geography of Kenya through focusing on the main human and physical features of the country. We will also learn about the key geographical features of the country including Kenyan wildlife, landscapes and culture. While exploring the similarities and differences between Kenya and the UK, the children will continue to develop their geographical skills through a variety of fun and interactive activities.

 

Here We Are
This September began with a whole school topic based on the wonderful book by Oliver Jeffers, 'Here We Are - Notes For Living on Planet Earth'. 
 
Through this topic we explored the world around us, helping to make sense of our world and the children's role in it. 
 
Children in class 2 had a super time creating songs, poems and their own notes for living on planet earth, as well as exploring the environment around them.
Harvest
For our harvest celebration this year, Class 2 created their own Harvest Haiku poems. The children really enjoyed the challenge of using the right number of syllables for each line of their poem (5, 7, 5), along with remembering why we thank God for the Harvest.
 
We paired our poems with some wonderful pumpkins, which the children made. These were then given as a Harvest gift to their families at home.
