Year 2 

 

Teacher: Mrs Ford & Mrs Speirs

Teaching Assistants: Mrs J Brierly 

 

This term our theme is ‘Chocolate’ and we are using the book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ as our stimulus.  The children have enjoyed getting to know the characters from the story and the author himself, ‘Roald Dahl’. They have produced some wonderful descriptions of their favourite characters and are currently creating their own new characters.

Topic

In topic we have been learning about the history of chocolate, where chocolate comes from and the countries in which the Cacao Tree like to grow.  Later on in the term we will be looking more closely at ‘John Cadbury’ and discovering why he is so important. 

The term will culminate in a trip to a real chocolate factory!  The children will get to make their own chocolate goodies and discover more about the process of making chocolate.

Art and D.T

In Art and D.T the children have been looking at the designs of chocolate bar wrappers and will spend the next few weeks researching and designing their own wrappers!

Science

In Science the focus is on healthy eating.  The children will be learning about what makes a healthy lunchbox and how we can keep ourselves healthy through a good diet and exercise.  They will also be looking at the importance of keeping our teeth healthy.

PE

We have a P.E coach working alongside us this term with a focus on Dance.  The children have already been working on some group dances linked with our text ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.  The children will get the chance to perform their dances during our class assembly at the end of term.
