Termly Theme / Topic

Welcome to Year 2!


Our topic this term is based on the Julia Donaldson book Zog. We will be learning all about Dragons, Castles and Knights and visiting real Castles locally! We will be learning about what a knight was, when they lived, what a castle was used for, when they were built, different features of a castle and medieval life. We will also be having a castle role play area to take on the role of Kings, Queens, Dragons and Knights!


In literacy, we will be writing Dragon stories, Poems and Newspaper Reports. In Maths, we will be learning to multiply, divide, odd and even numbers, number sequences, money and doubling.


In PE we will be learning how to complete traditional folk and medieval dancing, working as a team and travelling in different ways around obstacles to rescue a Princess from a Castle and focussing on Gymnastics and creating sequences.


In ICT we will be visiting the ICT suite in the Junior Department every week as part of our transition to Year 3 and to develop our ICT skills. We will be learning how to work collaboratively using Google slides and create a Presentation all about the story Zog. We will also continue to develop our ICT, Maths and Literacy skills using the Chromebooks in class!

We will be learning about our own Welsh language and Culture and completing lots of St Davids Day activities such as focussing on the creative work of the Welsh Artist Rhianon Roberts. We will also be looking at other Celebrations such as Chinese New Year.


We will be celebrating the end of our topic with a medieval banquet!
