Welcome to a new school year at Mobberley C of E Primary School.
My name is Miss Lightfoot and I teach Year 2.
I am the Computing subject leader and I am also the school SENCo.
This half term our Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project is ‘Land Ahoy!’
In this unit of work the children will be introduced to Captain Blue Beard, a Pirate who needs our help! Over the course of the half term we will receive letters from Captain Blue Beard asking us to complete tasks for him. For example, he has lost his map of the UK and needs us to draw and label a new one for him.
The children will respond to questions about where places are using globes and atlases, they will begin to offer observations about different locations. By the end of the unit children will be able to name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the UK and its surrounding seas and also locate different Continents and Oceans on a World map.
The children will learn about the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements, including Captain Cook and Christopher Columbus. The children will compare aspects of life in different periods.
The children will use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features, they will then devise a simple map and use and construct basic symbols in a key.
I am looking forward to this term and will keep you updated with news about Year 2!
