Summer 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Hello, welcome to Year 2.

At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics and called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to either Science, History or Geography.


For this half term, we have two Science drivers and our questions to investigate are…



The first Science topic is all about Plants. Within this topic we will be observing and describing how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants. We will also be finding out and describing how plants needs water, light and suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy. We will plant our own seeds and make observations/recordings of our plants.


Within the second Science topic, the children will be exploring and comparing the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive. They will also be identifying and naming a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including micro-habitats; and describing how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain.


Here is an outline of the other curriculum areas we will be covering this term.


Below are some links to some useful websites for the children to use for their own research and enjoyment.
