Friday 1st May

Happy May Day Year 2 – have a good day

There are 2 subjects in topic today -  geography and history

Geography

The weather influences what we wear, what we do and where we go.  Sometimes the weather even influences how we feel!

  1. How does different weather (rain, sun, wind) make you feel?
  2. How does the weather influence what you wear?
  3. How does the weather influence what you do?

Think and talk about these questions.

Watch this animation ‘The Sun and the Wind’.

First watch and listen to:

The music of Vivaldi inspires Ben, Lottie, Mia, Ajay and Akshay to draw what they hear. Through Vivaldi they learn how music can inspire pictures and symbols
