Years 1 & 2

Years 1 and 2 Curriculum Overview

Our next topic in Year 1 and 2 is going to be… Bright Lights Big City!

This is going to be an investigative learning project for the children and a great opportunity for them to learn more about cities through time.

Our English focus is going to be based on diaries, fact flies, letters and narrative.

Science: The senses and materials.

Geography: City demographics.

History: The Great Fire of London and life in 1666.

We are really looking forward to finding out more about cities and the history behind them!

 Ideas for home learning 

  • Spot and talk about different types of vehicles while you are out and about with your family.
  • Visit a city near you with an adult. Look out for interesting buildings that are different sizes and shapes. Make a list of the sights, sounds and smells that you discover. You could even draw a simple map of your journey.
  •  Create and label a picture or map of a fantasy city. What type of buildings would be in your city and what would they look like? What transport would people use in this city?


I love this class because there is always something exciting to do!
