This term our theme in Year 2 is ‘Change’. We’re learning all about how we can change the shape of different materials in science and in English we’re reading some great books where the characters change. We’re also finding out the changes to children’s lives from the Victorian times. We’ll be learning about what jobs children had to do and what life was like in the mills for children as this is such an important part of our history in Macclesfield. We’ll also be going on a trip to see a mill working and how children lived in those times…we can’t imagine they’ll want to stay!
More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the ‘Curriculum Plan’ which can be found in ‘Files to Download’ at the bottom of this page. We also update our school facebook page regularly with photos about what we’ve been up to.
If you have any queries regarding homework, please do come and ask me (my door is always open at the end of the day). The school homework policy is available to download from the main school homepage too.
