Curriculum Map for Parents: 'What a wonderful world' Summer Term 2019

Welcome to the Year 2 Summer Term topic 'What a wonderful world'. Our key question this term will be to explore how we can help our planet. Children will develop their knowledge and understanding of the world; understand their role within the school, local and wider community and develop an awareness of themselves, their responsibilities and actions. Our key text will be 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
