The Class 2 topic for this half term is, ‘Earthlings’. We will be learning about the solar system, describing the position of the Earth relative to other planets and the Sun, and describing how the Earth orbits the Sun. We will also be investigating how shadows change during the course of a day, describing our findings in terms of the Earth’s orbit. In art, we will be looking at abstract painting and will be creating our own abstract paintings of imaginary planet surfaces. We will be learning about the work of famous artists such as Jackson Pollock and Kandinsky.
