Autumn One Topic Map - Rainforests

Welcome to Year Two!


During the Autumn term we are going to spend time getting to know each other and focusing on feeling happy and settled in our new classrooms. We will be thinking about friendship and ways in which we can show qualities of friendship such as sharing, kindness and support.  


Our topic this term is all about Rainforests! During the first few weeks, we will be learning about animal groups and sorting animals. We will also learn about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.


In geography, we will start to identify the continents in the world and spot the hot and cold places in relation to the equator. We will also identify the physical features of the rainforest by studying maps and aerial photos.


After learning about the four layers of the rainforest, we will be investigating animal habitats and micro habitats and learning which animals and plants are suited to those habitats. We will consider the food chains present in a habitat and how plants and animals are dependent on one another for survival. We will explore animal lifecycles.
