Year 2 Autumn Term 2019 'This is Me'

Our topic 'This is Me', will enable children to develop an understanding of their own strengths and talents by being motivated in finding out about inspirational people past and present. The children should understand and appreciate the qualities needed to be resilient to achieve a goal through making connections with a range of quality texts (The Bear and the Piano, The Dot, All the ways to be smart).

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.
