Spring Term 2023

We have an exciting Spring term ahead of us in Year 2! 

We will be moving on to our new DPC unit of work focusing on holidays and travel, called ‘From A to B’. We will be finding out about different modes of transport used throughout history and how new technology has changed the way we travel. Our children will have the chance to learn about children's lives from different countries and even learn a few words in other languages.

In Geography, we will be focusing on physical and human features of different locations and learning basic map skills. We will also be learning about the history of Dorridge, exploring features in the local area and making our own maps of Dorridge. In Art, we will be learning about a range of artists and how they use different media to create pictures of vehicles.

Our daily English, spelling and maths sessions will continue to be practical, engaging and, wherever possible, linked to our overall topic. We are continuing to focus on reading for pleasure during our whole-class reading sessions and working hard on our comprehension skills during shared reading.

In Science, we will be learning about animals and their needs, their life processes, as well as seasonal changes in our local environment. The children will be learning about the characteristics of living things, their growth and development and that different animals start life in different forms (e.g. eggs/live births) 

We will also hopefully have an exciting RE trip during Spring term to the local synagogue to provide additional learning opportunities as part of our Judaism unit.
