Welcome to Year 2 - Badgers Class
This term we will be learning about Space. We are very lucky to have the opportunity to experience the pop up planetarium which will be visiting the school at some point during the half term. In that time the children will experience a 360 degree show through pictures and film of the solar system, along with a talk explaining the key facts.
We will be using space and space related books and videos for inspiration for some fictional writing in English, as well as creating information texts and posters on various planets. We will also being looking at space exploration and the ‘race to space’ as well as investigating space food and other items required for space travel.
Finally we hope to finish the topic with an ‘Alien Invasion’ where the children will finish with a party and where each child will have an opportunity to wear their alien costume (see homework task). We will provide more information about this at a later date.
As always any topic related books or resources your child would like to share with the class, then they are welcome to bring them in. Please ensure that these are named.
We hope to have a Spacetastic Term !!
