Year 2 2018/2019
Welcome to the Year 2 contents page.
Our topics this year are:
Throw it, catch it, roll it, bounce it! BOING, BOING, BOING! Up and down and side to side, can you catch the bouncing ball? Can you bounce too? Jump like a horse, leap like a frog or kick like a kangaroo! How many bounces can you do? Now let’s relax… Breathe deeply and stretch those tired muscles. Yawn… All that bouncing must be making you tired!
Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs.
Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers.
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr... me hearties, – it’s a sailor’s life for me!
Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world – just like Captain Cook.
Thar’s land ahead, me buckos! Let’s get t’ship t’port.
This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop?
Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras… it’s time to start investigating!
Towers, Tunnels and Tunnets
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower...
Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground.
And finally… meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf!
Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! Do you? That’s good, because you’re about to become an expert beachcomber!
Head to your nearest beach to look for interesting and unusual objects, using your senses to spot, sniff and seek them out.
Got your shorts and sunglasses on? Bucket and spade at the ready? Splish, splash! Let’s get beachcombing…
