Year 2 Class Teacher
Welcome to Year 2!
This term our topic is ‘Building’. We will be using our collaboration muscle and resilience learning muscle a lot to help us become better learners and start our ‘New Beginnings’ in Year 2, as we build our own new team. We will begin with the stories Building Boy, Rosie Revere Engineer and Iggy Peck Architect, so we can learn about how and why things are planned and built. We will investigate the local area and look at the houses around us, designing and making our own maps. Then we will interview an architect and meet the team from Kier Group Construction, who will teach us about how to stay safe when we are building. We will build, photograph and paint our own cityscapes. We will then read the Light House Keepers Lunch and design our own healthy lunches, demonstrating making these to parents and encouraging them to buy some of our wares as part of our social enterprise. Finally, we will be investigating how sounds and music can build effects and add another element to films and stories.
