Welcome to Year 2


This term, our learning will have a Science and Geography focus. In Science, we will be learning about habitats around the world and the ecosystems which exist there. In Geography we will be learning all about weather and climate around the world, including finding out why some countries have warmer climates and collecting data to find out about the weather in our local area. In English, we will be writing travel journals using our knowledge we have learnt in English, during Year 2. 

Our Big Idea this term is Protecting animals and nature. We will be discussing broad questions such as:

  • Can humans and animals live together?
  • Why do we need to protect  wildlife?
  • Which is a priority, green spaces or buildings?

  • Dian Fossey-  conservationist known for undertaking an extensive study of the mountain gorilla 
  • David Attenborough- is a British broadcaster, biologist, natural historian, and writer.
