# What We Are Learning in Y2

Welcome

Our Topic for the first half of the Summer term is called Scented Garden. The children will be learning about what plants need to survive, about the temperature and amount of light a plant needs and doing lots of planting themselves. We will be making lots of observations, identifying and classifying.

The children will use fieldwork to study the geography of the school and its grounds. We will embark upon a local walk to see what plants and flowers are growing and take photographs of them. We will discuss which plants can be dangerous and group them in different ways.
