Plovers and Sandpipers

Welcome to Year 2 at Kestrel Way. Please find below key information related to our topics including learning logs and topic leaflets. Our specific class pages have photos and further information.


This half term's exciting topic is Space Quest'. We will be researching the planets of the solar system and learning about the sun, moon and stars. In Science, we will also be comparing the differences between things that are living and those that have never been alive as well as exploring the basic conditions needed for life on Earth and other planets. In Geography, we will be learning to name and locate the world's seven continents and five oceans and in History, we will be exploring the history of space travel including the Space Race and the Moon Landings. We will continue to develop our programming skills in Computing using Purple Mash and we will recreate our own version of Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' painting in our Art lessons.
