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
This term, Year 2's IPC topic is called "Earth - Our Home", which coincides perfectly with our Science topic of "Living Things and their Habitats".
In IPC, we will cover various issues such as deforestation and recycling, and learning about different habitats of the world and which animals we can find there.
In Science we will be doing investigations into what is living, dead and never been alive, trees and food chains. We will also be conducting case studies on different animals.
For our DT day, we will be building our own nesting box for solitary bees and maybe some other insects if we are lucky! Micro-habitats will also be studied across both IPC and Science and we look forward to spending some time in Pocket Park to help us in our investigations!
