Our topic question for this half term is
'Why is the Great Fire of London still remembered?'
In this topic we will be learning all about what happened during the Great Fire of London and look into how life changed for people following the fire. We will learn all about Samuel Pepys and his diary and how this was an important document in finding out exactly what happened all those many years ago.
Our first topic in year 2 will be the question
'Why were Christopher Columbus and Amy Johnson very brave people?'
In this topic we will learn all about the journeys Amy Johnson and Christopher Columbus made, and explore how they were different. We will use their journeys to learn all about where different places are in the world, and learn all about the world's 7 continents and 5 oceans.
Our current class novel is Toto the Ninja Cat and the Great Snake Escape by Dermot O'Leary.
Toto the cat and her brother Silver live footloose and fancy-free in a townhouse in London. Toto is almost totally blind, and learned to trust her senses from a ninja cat-master who taught her back in Italy where they were born. By day, Toto and Silver seem to be ordinary cats, but by night, they love to have adventures!
One evening, news reaches Toto that a king cobra has escaped from London Zoo! Together with help from a very posh cat and two hungry tigers, Toto and Silver must investigate. Can they find the giant snake, before it's too late?
So far in class we have read and really enjoyed:
- Grandpa Bert and the Ghost Snatchers by Malorie Blackman.
