Welcome to Green Class with Mrs Harris, Mrs Lawrence, Mrs Sinfield and Mrs Priestley
Our exciting new topic until Easter is called 'The Great Croft Bake Off!
Year 2 will learn how to keep clean whilst handling food, how to use kitchen equipment safely and the importance of eating a healthy and balanced diet. All of our Year 2 topics are linked to work across the curriculum and in English children will write for a variety of purposes including learning how to write instructions, recipes, a letter and poetry inspired by lots of fantastic stories! Children will design, make and evaluate their own pitta pizzas and pancakes whilst reading 'The Pizza Princess' and 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes'. They will learn how to create their own food poem when they read 'The Sun is a Cupcake and other poems' and will learn about the features of instruction writing and how to set out and write their own recipes by looking at the work of inspirational chefs and cooks such as Nadiya Hussain!
Our first topic this year is called 'Lights, Camera, Action!' and is all about Walt Disney! Year 2 will learn about the life of Walt Disney and the many films he produced (and watch some too!)
Children will complete film and book reviews after watching the films and reading Disney stories, and will also compare and contrast different Disney films in English lessons and across the curriculum. Children will practise writing for different purposes during this topic, including writing a character description, a diary, a postcard and a fact file.
They will also learn about countries and continents around the world by locating where the different films were set.
