Year 2 Learning Challenge Curriculum
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 region 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?
Which animals would you find living in the wild in Australia?
How can you recreate Australian aboriginal art?
What would your school day be like if you lived in Australia?
In an exciting new collaboration, we will also be linking with a Year 2 class in a primary school in Queensland, Australia. We hope to exchange videos, emails, pictures and stories with our buddy class so that we can learn about each other’s towns, schools and interests.
Science What is our school made of?
Year 2 will be identifying and comparing a range of everyday materials. They will explore how materials can be changed and will choose which materials are suited to a specific purpose. They will ask:
What are the different parts of the school made of and why?
How do materials change when we change the temperature?
What if we were going to knock our school down and rebuild it, what jobs would we need to do, what materials would we use? Would it look different to our existing school?

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.
