Welcome to Year 1/2- Elm

Welcome to Year 1/2- Elm

In Year 1/2 the children are encouraged to be confident independent learners. We aim to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and continue to develop resilience. Every child is asked to try their best and show a growth mindset when undertaking challenges.

English and maths lessons focus on developing key skills through a variety of practical games and written activities.

- The book we are studying this half term in English is The Bog Baby By Jeanne Willis.

- Our theme this half term is ‘The Place Where I Live’. We will be finding out about the where we live and the local area. We will learn about what our area was like in the past and what it was like for children. In science we will be learning about seasonal changes and in art we will be using different materials and techniques to create drawings and rubbings. 

We are sure you will enjoy hearing all about the theme we will be exploring each half term. Trips and visitors will be organised throughout the year.
