This Autumn term, Year 2 will be learning all about The Great Fire Of London which took place in 1666.

Our Art lessons will allow the children to explore architecture. We will learn about Christopher Wren who designed St Paul’s Cathedral after the Great Fire of London and Richard Norman Shaw who is also considered to be among the greatest of British architects; the children will have the opportunity to design their own houses and create sculpture.

In English, the children will be reading Man on the Moon where we meet the hilarious character Bob whom emphatically reassures us that there is no such thing as aliens… but perhaps Year 2 know better?! We will be writing adverts to encourage others to visit the moon.

In Science the children will be learning about Living Things and their environments- taking into account our changing environment this Autumn.

In Maths we will explore Place Value up to 100, Addition and Subtraction and Shapes.

We will start this term with Gymnastics every Monday afternoon and we will continue our music lessons with Ms Pryce.​
