In Y2, our text is ‘The Emperor’s Egg’ by Martin Jenkins. This is a non-fiction text all about Emperor penguins and the struggles the Dads face looking after the eggs. We have already pretended to be male Emperor penguins, keeping a sock-egg on our feet in the cold, and seen just how tricky it is!
In maths, we are focusing on division and money. We are learning what division means and how to divide by 2, 5 and 10. We will then apply this to our work on money, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to find different totals.
Our history topic this half-term is the important Elizabeth Fry. We have just started learning about her but are soon going to find out how important she was in helping people such as women, prisoners and the homeless.
In art, we are looking at the collage artists, Wassily Kandinsky and Hannah Hoch. We will be recreating their work and comparing their styles.
