Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page
Autumn. The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.
It's also the season that marks the start of the new school year...
...and isn't it good to finally be back in school!
We have a busy term ahead of us, but most importantly it's all about the children getting back into the routine, meeting again with their friends and enjoying all the challenges and fun times that are part and parcel of the school day.
Autumn Term 1
Topic Enrichment - Life in the 1960s
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.
