Autumn Term 2021

Welcome to our brand new school year Class 2. I hope you have all had a wonderful summer break. I have thoroughly missed all of you and I cannot wait to work with you this year.

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


 From this term, we are going to be changing our curriculum so rather than having a topic, we are going to have a BIG question! We will then explore the question, break it down, become experts in our field and by the end of our unit of learning, we will all be able to answer the big question!

This term, our big question is:


Why do we need to save the rainforest?


We cannot simply Google the answer to this question so we are going to need to get our thinking caps on. We are going to need to understand, where the tropical rainforests are, what a rainforest is made up of, what/who lives in the rainforests, what the rainforests can give us and how they help us and also why they are under threat!


So that you can have a headstart and begin to explore our BIG question, I have put some websites below for you to have a look at!


Have a look at the website below and follow the Go Jetters as they move around the different continents and find out lots of Funky Facts!

How many of the facts can you remember when we get back to school?

Continents of the World

 Click on the picture below to label the continents of the world. Can you remember the names of them all? Do you know where they all are?

Get Creative

Do you want to get creative? How about making your own Rainforest Diorama (model)? Click the picture below to see more lovely dioramas. Remember to bring in anything you make so we can show it off to the rest of the class!



In English, we are going to start the term by reading Elmer. Click the link below to listen to the author, David McKee, reading this lovely story.
