Elm - Year 2 2023 - 2024

Mrs Heath

Welcome to Elm Class

Our book this half term is called 'The King Who Banned the Dark' by Emily Haworth-Booth. This clever and unusal book follows the story of a King who as a child, was afraid of the dark. In class, we will be using this quality text as a stimulus to help us write a persuasive letter. 

The King Who Banned the Dark by Emily Haworth-Booth


Our topic this half term is 'From Queen E to Queen V.' We will exploring the history of the British Monarchy and learning all about the Victorian Era. In DT we will be making a throne fit for a King or Queen. In Science we will be learning about Animals Including Humans - exploring lifecycles, healthy eating and survival needs. Amongst all that, we have many Christmas traditions and festivities planned.
