Welcome to Year 2 and Kingfisher Class!
Kings, Queens, Lords, Ladies and Nobles…welcome to our castle! Mind the dragon on your way in!
Year 2’s new topic is ‘Dragon Trainers’. We will start the term with a castle building day and will make and create items for our castle classroom! This topic, we will be learning all about castles and why they were built. We will learn the historical vocabulary needed to describe the parts of a castle. Our key texts will be ‘How to train your dragon’ by Cressida Cowell and ‘Sir Charlie Stinkysocks’ by Kristina Stephenson.
We will also learn about plants; their names, structures and what they need in order to grow and stay healthy. What would a castle garden have in it to impress the visitors?
Later on this term, we will select tools and materials to make a cannon on wheels to protect the castle. We will evaluate our designs and consider improvements.
