Year 2 - Musée du Louvre
This year, Year 2 are named after the Musee Du Louvre. The Musee Du Louvre is the world's largest art museum, located in Paris near the River Seine.
Perhaps most famously, it is home to the Mona Lisa, which Year 2 have learnt all about. They explored the idea of a portrait and were intrigued at the concept of their eyes following you around and tried it out themselves by creating their own modern versions of the Mona Lisa, complete with her face and eyes.
IPC and STEM
Year 2's IPC topic this half term is "A Day in the Life". We will be learning about the jobs people do in our school and outside of it, about the people who help us and the jobs people used to do in the past. We will be learning about significant people from the past such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, about the jobs they did and how they differ to today.
As Florence Nightingale was around when scurvy was, we will be looking at how to make a "how to avoid scurvy vegetable soup!". This will involve us researching which fruits and vegetables are best, buying (including drawing maps to the local shop), making, writing recipes and evaluating how they taste!
In Science, we are continuing "Living Things and their Habitats" and will look forward to our trips to Bruce Castle grounds for a nature detective trail and the farm to compliment it!
