This term our topic is 'Our Scented Garden' where the children are going to learn about plant growth. They will read lots of different story books and use these as a stimulus for their writing. Our local library have also sent lots of non fiction books about plants for the children to access too. Our class continent is Africa so we will research which plants live there. We will have lots of flowering and non flowering plants in the classroom to observe and write about. At Hawthorn, we have beautiful grounds for the children to explore and the children will be planting their our seeds to grow. It's going to be a very busy half term! Keep an eye out for the next update with Year 2 because in a few weeks it is National Science Week and we can't wait to let you know about our plans.
Mr Parker has sent Year 2 lots of different plants and some of his homemade compost to use this half term. He sent them a letter, asking the children find out what conditions plants need to grow in! They are going to write back to him when they have found out.
Year 2 are going to learn about Fractions this half term and we will use Numicon to help us. It's going to be very exciting!
