Learning Challenge Curriculum

Spring 2

Which Ilkley would you rather live in?

This Learning Challenge will be looking at comparing our local area with Ilkley in Queensland, Australia. We will be looking at the human and physical features of each and will discuss how the location of each affects the town. We will be answering questions such as:

 Where in the world is Ilkley?

 What is the climate like in Ilkley, Australia?

How are the two landscapes different?

Science – What’s the point of a hedge?

Year 2 will be recognising and comparing different habitats. We will be thinking about why these habitats are suitable for the animals that live there and what they eat. We will be looking at the life cycles of some of the animals we might find in our local area. We will explore the following questions using our enquiry skills:

 What is a habitat?

 What type of animal might live in this habitat and why?

 What is a food chain?


Calling all volunteers!

Last year the children enjoyed and greatly benefited from numerous parent volunteers who supported our curriculum themes, reading and invaluable school trips. This is a real strength of our school, and one which we are very keen to continue!  Please do get in touch if you think you can help in any way.
