Year 2

Autumn Term Information


Year 2 have really enjoyed our Autumn topic - The Show Must Go On. Learners wanted to focus on The Greatest Showman, whilst researching circus life and animals. The topic began with an Immersion day full of circus skills, dancing and circus-related craft!

Learners have developed their writing skills considerably throughout this topic completing factfiles and re-tells. They have had many opportunities to complete independent research using the internet and also taken part in debate.

The highlight of our topic however, was the children creating their own music video. They studied the lyrics for A Million Dreams, decided on their costumes and created the scenes for filming.

Our topic ended with a fantastic Red Carpet Event where we invited parents to attend a premiere of the music video. We were so overwhelmed by the number of parents who attended and everyone agreed that the children had done an outstanding job!

We now look forward to  our concert ‘The Inn-spectors’ and continuing our learning in Spring term.
