We have another exciting year of work planned for the lovely Elms class. Our first topic is ‘Rotten Romans’, where possible our learning will be linked to this. We will be writing poems, stories and non-fiction pages linked to our topic. In mathematics we will continue to work on problem solving with particular focus on addition and subtraction strategies. In Art we will be making Mosaics and finding out about the traditions behind this ancient art form. Using maps for various purposes will be our focus within Geography – we will be exploring where the Romans controlled; both within the UK and further afield.
Not all our work links to the Romans. In Science will be studying animals and humans, Year 2 will focus on changes from babies to adulthood whilst Year 3 will explore skeletons and teeth. In RE Year 2 focus on Judaism and Year 3 on rules for living. Our computing work will create animations and in French we will be learning greetings and instructions.
