Creative planning

Discussion in 'Primary' started by xteachersarahx, Dec 9, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I will be beginning a new job soon and currently working on planning for the year. Speaking to the other Year 2 teacher we have come up with a draft plan of 'Our wonderful world'. Each half term we then focus on a different place in the world/topic so we would need six altogether. At the moment I have thought of:
    Antarctica - explorers
    Peru- Rainforest, including the Incas
    Australia- Under the sea
    China- Festivals (Chinese New Year)
    Italy - Mountains and volcanoes (could include a little about Florence Nightingale)
    Madagascar - Island life
    Greece- The Olympics
    South Africa - Safari, including famous people (Nelson Mandela)
    India - India with Barnaby Bear

    Do you think this would actually work for a whole year though? Which would you choose/do you think are most suited to Year 2/any other ideas?
    I'm also thinking of linking a couple to Mantle of the Expert.
    Thanks for your help! x
