Welcome to Year Two's Curriculum page
On this page we will share with you:
Our topic for the Summer term is…the Titanic!
In history we will explore primary and secondary sources to find out information about this famous ocean liner and the events that led to its sinking. After placing events in chronological order, we will take on the role of safety advisors, suggesting ways that a similar disaster could be avoided. Our English will be linked as much as possible through our historical work and include revisiting the skills of writing recounts, creating a postcard about our Titanic experiences and correctly applying more complex punctuation and writing different types of sentences.
We will revise our key geography knowledge about the 7 continents and 5 oceans as we look at the route the Titanic could have taken. We will then explore the city of New York to create our own Cityscape drawings and clay scultpures.
In DT we will work in pairs to explore and use winding mechanisms and use these in a model of the Titanic with a lifeboat that can be lowered or lifted. We hope our Titanic models will be realistic!
Our science skills will begin by exploring the properties of different materials and how these can be changed in different. We will then develop our investigation skills in a range of experiments.
