Phase 2 Curriculum February 2017

Year 2

Year Two As we come towards the end of our Great Fire of London topic, we are now preparing for our whole class assemblies on the 9th and 10th February. We hope to entertain and educate you all on the events surrounding the Great Fire! Our next curriculum based topic will be based around photography. We hope to look at a range of cameras, both past and present as well as investigating the work of some more notable photographers such as Ansel Adams, Annie Leibovitz and Charlie Waite. We hope that the children will be able to produce a gallery of their own work including portraits, landscapes and a few more abstracts pieces. Our aim will be to link part of our learning to our new school value of ‘Aspiration’.

Year 3

Year Three This term, we have begun our new curriculum topic of Kings and Queens. So far, the children have loved exploring the history of our country’s monarchy and creating our own human timeline within class.

The children will also learn about the Tudor rose and create their own self-portraits of themselves as kings and queens. We will be rounding off the topic with a Tudor Banquet Celebration Day on Thursday 9th February, and would like the children to come dressed up for the occasion! Throughout this exciting day, we will have the opportunity to create
