Summer 2019

 

Our topic for the first half term is:

'Ready, Set, Go!' 

During the topic we will explore the big question:

'How can you be the next Master Chef?'Image result for chef hat  cartoon

  

To kick start our healthy topic, the children will come to school dressed as farmers, ready to plant their very own crop of runner beans. They will look at a range of vegetables, flowers and plants growing in our beautiful wellies and waterproof area and will have the choice of where to place their runner bean to see how it will grow. The children will observe and record the growth of their beans throughout the term and look at how sunlight and water can affect the growth of a plant. The children will look at how to keep a healthy lifestyle and explore foods from each food group. They will make their own yummy recipes and look at the amount of sugar certain food products contain.

The children will complete a range of physical activities, to see how exercise impacts our bodies. We will then place our results into a tally chart and use our findings to create a bar chart.

 As part of our Fab Finish, the children will become Junior Master Chefs for the day. They will design and make healthy sandwiches ready for the Year 1 children to visit 'Robins and Wrens Restaurant'. The Year 1 children will have the opportunity to taste and judge the food for themselves. 

WATCH OUT JAMIE OLIVER… here come Year 2!

Our topic for the second half term is:

'Oh I do like to live beside the seaside!'

During the topic we will explore the big question:

'Why do we love to live beside the seaside?'

Get your bucket and spades ready, as we explore our last topic ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’. The smell of delicious fish and chips will be wafting through the air as our classrooms will be transformed into the seaside. We will use our senses to describe what we might see, hear, smell and taste at the seaside and then use these ideas to write some super, summer seaside poems. Through this topic we will be travelling back in time to Victorian Britain to experience what the seaside was like in the past. The children will use a range of aerial photographs to observe the key features of seaside and coastal locations.

We will use our artistic skills to create exciting, inspirational seaside picture as well as look at the creations of Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural resources to create his artwork.

We will then become Victorian ice-lolly inventors and design and create our own delicious lollies, which we will enjoy eating in the sunshine. We will then compare what we would see at the seaside today to Victorian times. We will write postcards home explaining the fantastic ‘Punch and Judy’ show, the rather smelly donkey ride and the funny outfits that we had to wear at the beach. Let’s hope the sun shines, Year 2!
