Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page

Dear Year  2,

I hope that you're all well.

This is usually my favourite half term in whole of the school year. The Year 2 SATs are over and we can look forward to doing fun activities like Sports Day.   The topics we would be learning about are also amongst my favourites, all with a theme linked to the sea. 

              

Mrs Owen would be teaching you a history topic all about the seaside holidays that  people who lived in Bury in the past would have enjoyed at this time of year.  The Topic Enrichment tasks I have set link to this learning. 

 

Don't forget to check the Home Learning page for your Numeracy and Literacy Activities for the week, to keep learning your weekly spellings and to keep reading.  All of these will help you when you finally return to school. 

 

I am missing you all and look forward to when Old Hall is once again a busy, happy school.

 

Keep safe and smiling,

 

Love, Mr Cooley x

As we come to the end of the school year and thoughts turn to our own summer holidays, Year 2's history focus this half term is "Where did the people who lived in Bury in the past go on holiday?"

In class the topic would focus on the Victorian and Edwardian eras and cover:

  • where the popular destinations were

  • the importance of the railways in making holidays possible

  • the similarities and differences between a seaside holiday now and in the past

  • staying in a guest house

  • bathing machines and swimming costumes

  • entertainment including the Punch and Judy Show

Here are some suggestions for the children to do at home to cover these areas of learning and a selection of websites that could be used to find out information.
