Welcome to Yellow Class with Miss Fletcher and Mrs Harrod! :)
In the summer term, our topic in Year 2 is called, 'The Great Croft Bake Off!' In this topic, we read lots of books such as The Rascally Cake, Pizza Princess and The Paper Bag Princess.
The children become authors when they change the story of the Pizza Princess and do some abstract pizza artwork! We also look at the features of recipes, make our own Pitta Pizzas and lots of other yummy things!
In science, we carry out an investigation to find out what plants need to grow, and work in small groups during STEM to find out about what materials would be best for building a bridge!
As part of our current topic learning about WW1 and nursing in the past, in English lessons we asked our Y2s at home and school to write letters sharing what they had learned about nurses and hospitals in the past. They sent their letters to the team at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, which are now up on display for everyone to see! 🏥👩⚕️👨⚕️🥼🩺🚑
Amazing work Year 2! Mrs Harris and I are so proud of your hard work! 😊💛💚
Our next topic in Year 2 is "Dig In!"
In this new topic the children will be learning all about World War One. They will be learning about life on the home front including the role of women and the "Dig for Victory" campaign. Children will learn about what life was like for the soldiers in the trenches, and children who were evacuees. They will also learn about hospitals and nurses in the past and compare them to those in the present day. Children will also learn about key individuals such as Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell who were significant during WW1 and the Crimean War.
