How we do subtraction in year 2

Our topic is People Who Help Us.

We will do all of our geography, history, music, art, RE, science, D&T and ICT around the topic 'People Who Help us ' We will start by looking at jobs in our communites such as fire fighters. We will also look at The Great Fire of London and what happened there and who helped.

We will visit the fire station soon and the children can compare the differences between past and present in relation to The Great Fire.

In science we will be investigating and exploring materials. One of our lessons is to think about a design for a bucket that could be used if there was a fire.
