Year 2 Adventures Through the Arctic

Year 2 have pulled on their gloves, scarves and hats and set off to discover the amazing adventures of the Arctic Circle.

The children were super excited to begin our discovery of all the Arctic has to offer. So far, they have learnt about where the Arctic countries are on the globe, what the climate is like and the physical features of the Arctic like icebergs and sea ice. We are currently making a 3-dimensional paper mache igloo for the centrepiece of our new wall display and we look forward to learning more about the animal and human adaptations. 

In art, we have discovered Paul Klee and his warm coloured abstract artworks like ‘Senecio’ and ‘Castle in the Sun’, creating our own inspired work using oil pastels. We are looking forward to using watercolours to colour mix ‘cool’ tones, to design Arctic and Klee inspired abstract landscapes to display in our ice-themed classroom this term.

In English, we have been busy writing our own Traction Man stories and designing his costume and packaging. We have really got the hang of using exciting adjectives and story language. Even Traction Man is visiting the Arctic; I wonder what his outfit and special superpower will be?

In Science, we have started to look at ‘Animals including Humans’. In this unit, children learn about how humans and other animals are born, grow and change, and what we and they need to survive and be healthy. We have already named some animal babies, investigated which animals some babies grow into, and discussed how an animal changes as it grows. We have shown this using ‘Life Cycles’. We have also considered the main categories of animals and how this affects how they have offspring. We managed to dismiss the theory that giraffes lay eggs!

Watch this space for our amazing new class display, coming soon!
