This week’s learning in Year 2 at a glance!

 

Year 2

Learning Link: Beside the Seaside

This term we will be learning about the seaside and how holidays have changed over the years. We will look at changes in transportation and the impact this has had on the places we can visit. We will be focusing on Victorian seaside holidays in history and we will be celebrating our learning at our SPACE day with donkey rides and a Punch and Judy show!
