This term our 'Va Va Voom!' topic will allow us to go back in time and learn about how transport has changed and developed over the years. Children will learn about the Wright Brothers and the invention of the airplane, as well as George Stephenson and the invention of the steam train. They will think about how their work developing different transport had an effect on people's lifestyles, such as their holiday destinations.
Children will then get to become designers themselves, and will use different materials and equipment to design and create their own futuristic vehicle. They will learn about how a wheel and axis works and use them in their creations.
In the build up to Christmas, children will use their art sessions to create fantastic festive gifts to sell at our school Christmas Fayre.
Throughout the term Year 2 will be working together to create a fantastic production of 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' to share with parents. We will be working really hard to learn and practice our lines, actions and songs to celebrate Christmas and end the term in a festive fahsion.
