Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page
This Spring, our Geography topic is all about Mexico! The colours, culture and traditions of this vibrant country will certainly brighten the rainiest winter days in Year 2.
Apart from learning about the physical and human geography of the country, we will also be finding out about famous people, like the artist Frida Kahlo in Literacy and Art. Year 2 will also be creating Mexican inspired textiles in Art. We will be making Mexican food and crafts in DT and investigating Mariachi bands in Music and PE. In Music we will also be learning some songs in Spanish to help us learn a little about the language.
Mexico has many cultural festivals and Year 2 will be learning about the Day of the Dead as part of our RE and PSHE studies. Mexican people observe this religious festival to honour their friends and family who have died.
Please have a look at home for any food packaging that has come from Mexico or has a Mexican influence and send them in for our display. Also, if anyone has been on holiday to Mexico, then please do send in photos etc for us to share.
Muchas gracias! Thank you very much!
Any questions or concerns, please do come and see us.
Mrs Lee and Miss Wharrier (Class Teachers)
