Astwood Bank Primary School

"A centre of learning and opportunity"



Welcome to Year 2

Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

Year 2 are hanging on to the summer by learning all about seaside holidays. In particular, we’ll compare our own holidays with those taken in Victorian times. Our history lessons will teach children about chronology and they’ll learn to ask and answer questions about different sources of information. They will gain knowledge of popular seaside destinations in Britain and around the World, and they’ll learn to use maps and atlases to locate these places. English lessons will teach children to write postcards, compose seaside themed poetry, write non-fiction texts and design posters to discourage plastic pollution. Children will create sea creature fact files, building links with science lessons which will teach children about ocean habitats, life cycles and world preservation.

PE: Wednesday’s & Thursdays

Homework: Spellings issued on a Monday & CGP books on Fridays
