Welcome to Year 2!
Our Topic This Term
It’s the Summer Term and our topic is aptly named ‘Wacky races’. Our learning and development of skills will help us to complete our Key Task of holding our own wacky race using vehicles that we have designed and made.
Our main focus will be space and different modes of transport. As historians we will think about different types of transport, the similarities between vehicles of the past and present as well as looking at how they have changed over time. We will be finding out about the first train and the great space race.
As Artists, we will be using chalks to re-create Van Gogh’s Starry night art work as we explore space. As designers we will design and make our very own vehicles using wood and card. This will help in developing the techniques of measuring, marking, cutting and joining. We will use our vehicles to host our very own wacky race.
