Mrs Huntingford

WELCOME BACK Class 2! I hope you have all had a wonderful and relaxing Easter break, filled with lots of fun and chocolate eggs!

This term, we have lots of exciting new learning to do, so have a look below to get a head start.

The Incredibles

This term, our topic is 'The Incredibles!' We are going to be learning about famous, incredible inventors, with a focus on the Wright Brothers. Can you find out who they are and what they invented?

In Geography, we are going to be finding out more about our planet - Earth. We will be learning about the world's 7 continents and 5 oceans - which is the largest? Which is the smallest? Which ones do we live in/near?

In art, we are studying 'Pop Art.'This is my favourite style of artwork - it is fun, colourful and bold. Can you find out the names of any artists who created Pop Art?
