Year 2


What’s happening this half term?


In English we will be looking at a book called ‘I am Rosa Parks’ by Brad Meltzer. We will think about how it was for Rosa Parks growing up and discuss her thoughts and feelings. We will write letters and diary entrys to express this.


In Maths we will be working on position and direction. We will then move onto investigations. 


Our Topic work will also be based around a question: How have people like Rosa Parks helped to make the world a better place? In this unit we will learn about how people like Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and Martian Luther King all stood up against discrimination. 


Our Science work will be based around a question: Would a dinosaur make a good pet? In this unit we will explore living things in their habitats. We will also focus on an exiting Design and Technology project where the children will make their own habitats.
