Year 2

This half term our topic is called ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’. The children were introduced to this topic by a World War I soldier visiting them and answering questions about life on the trenches.

The children will be learning about WWI and the conditions during the war as well as the life of Walter Tull. Year 2 will also be learning a selection of songs that would have be sung during the WWI period.

The children will be having a Victorian style day at school where they will be dressed in the eras outfit and experience school as it would have been in WWI.

In Art the children will be developing a wider range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.
