This term, we are explorers … adventuring into the seaside!


Welcome back Year 2! We are very excited for the Summer term and are really looking forward to exploring our new topic.

This term we are explorers….adventuring into the seaside. We will be learning all about how seaside holidays came about during the Victorian era, using our geography skills to locate seside resorts around Great Britain and identifying human and physical features of the seaside itself. 

To begin with in English, we will be doing some writing around the traditional tale Jack and the Beanstalk before moving on to looking at the story Grandad's Island. 

In Maths we will be consolidating our learning of the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As well as learning about shape, time and fractions.

We also have our residential to Llandudno to get excited about! 



Importance of Reading:

Reading plays a fundamental part in all areas of the Elm curriculum. Over the year, we will immerse ourselves in high quality texts which will help to drive our learning. In class we have access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books which we are able to use not only within our Guided Reading sessions, but also when appropriate in our curriculum lessons to support our learning. Each term we have a spotlight author who has been chosen for their high-quality texts. This term our spotlight author is Jeremy Strong. Over the course of the term, we will have to opportunity to listen to, read and learn more about these fantastic authors. Having this literacy-rich environment will encourage a positive culture of reading within our class and promote the children's enjoyment of reading.
