Year 2 Curriculum Overview

Autumn One - Why is Planet Earth our home?

At the start of a new year, we learn about our Earth and whether it is the only (and best) place to live. To encourage aspiration, we learn about famous people who weren’t satisfied with staying where they were.  We explore our world and the world beyond, inspired by the explorers who discovered it, both real and fictional. We learn the characteristics that all these explorers have. We investigate how great explored travelled and see if we could emulate them.

We explore whether we have to live on Earth or whether we could live on the moon, investigating conditions for life. We then learn about our place in the world, developing a wider knowledge of it; and how important it is to look after it responsibly if we can’t live on any other planets.
