New Topics in Year 2
Year 2 have started work on two historical topics that we will be working heavily on throughout the reminder of the summer term. Our first project is to find out all about Florence Nightingale and the Crimean War. We are interested in researching who Florence was, and why she is still remembered as being a very important historical figure.
We will also be looking at the Great Fire of London. As well as a historical approach, this work will also include a geography element. Year 2 will be exploring the streets of London, and linking how the destruction of the Great Fire led to the current layout of our modern day city.
If all goes well then we hope to reward our hard working Year 2 pupils with a trip to the seaside at the end of the term!
