Learning Challenge Curriculum
Whose team is it anyway?
Year 2 will be learning about the lives of the famous people our school houses are named after. During the theme (which will continue after half-term) they will ask:
- Who was Hockney/Chippendale/Delius/Bronte?
- Why do we remember these people?
The topic lends itself to exploration of the creative arts and as part of our learning we intend to become artists, designers, composers and authors. Inspired by our visit to the Hockney Gallery at Cartwright Hall, we will be planning and creating artwork for our own art exhibition, to which we would like to invite parents and carers.
How can we grow our own salad?
The children will be learning about plants and which conditions are the best to grow them. We will be growing a range of plants, both indoors and outdoors and thinking about what they need to thrive. They will be answering questions such as:
- How do seeds and bulbs grow into plants?
- What do plants need to stay healthy?
- Which plants grow the fastest ?

Calling all volunteers!
Last year the children enjoyed and greatly benefited from numerous parent volunteers who supported our curriculum themes, reading and invaluable school trips. This is a real strength of our school, and one which we are very keen to continue! Please do get in touch if you think you can help in any way.
