Knowledge Organisers

Each term, we produce a knowledge organiser to explain the key areas of the topic we will be focusing on.  A knowledge organiser is a document that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic.

Most knowledge organisers will include:

  • the essential facts about the topic, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks
  • key vocabulary or technical terms and their meaning

This term our Key Question is Geography based: 'Does everyone in the world have the same lifestyle?'  We will be comparing the climate, life and landscapes in the UK with those of Kenya. During our Art lessons, we will look at African art and design and make African masks.   We will extend our understanding of Kenya and Africa through written activities in our English lessons.  Our key text is 'Lila and the Secret of Rain' by David Conway and we will also be using non-fiction texts to research African animals.  Our Science topic this term is Everyday Materials and we will be investigating their properties through a range of exciting experiments.

This term we have PE on THURSDAYS.

Everyday Materials 



Please remember to hear your child read daily – it makes such a difference to your child’s reading.

You can also come into the Year 2 class at the end of every day to read with your child.

A new homework sheet will be stuck into the children's homework books at the beginning of the term. Please ensure the books come into school each Monday. I love to see what the children are learning at home!
