Welcome to Year 2Z
Class Teacher: Mrs Zegan
Teaching Assistants: Ms Brumant and Mrs Deva
In our Class Page, you will find out information about the exciting Topics that we will be learning about.
Autumn 1- Who Am I?
In the topic, we explored Africa. To launch the theme, children investigated family trees to learn about their families and where they come from. We talked about our dreams and ambitions.
We read “Amazing Grace” and its sequel “Grace and Family” by Mary Hoffman.
We learnt about an inventor- John Lee Love, a politician- Martin Luther King and an activist- Ruby Bridges.
After listening to the ‘I have a dream’ speech by Martin Luther King, to finish our Topic, children wrote and performed their own speeches. On that special day, they represented their country of origin and came in to school dressed in their traditional clothes.
Autumn 2- Everything Changes
This half term we will be focusing on Science and the changes that happen in all aspects of our lives.
We read “10 Things I Can Do To Help My World” by Melanie Walsh and “Pattan’s Pumpkin” by Chitra Soundar.
