Autumn 1

This half term, Year 2’s topic is ‘History of Camden Canals’. We will look at photos and paintings of the canals from the past and present and make comparisons between them, talking about their original purpose and how that may have changed over time. We will also use drama and related picture books to explore the history of our local canals and to inspire our writing.

In Maths, we will explore place value and different ways of representing 2-digit numbers. We will also begin exploring different methods for addition and subtraction.

In Science, our focus will be ‘Animals (Including Humans)’ and we will be exploring the different things that all animals need to survive, as well as the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. In Computing we will concentrate on online safety, as well as some basic coding.

In Art, we will be exploring our pop art theme by looking at the work of artist Andy Warhol and creating artwork inspired by some of his pieces.

In RE, we will be learning about the Sikhism and Christianity and the children will be able to explain their beliefs as well as learn about the ideas of others.
