Harbury C of E

Primary School

To love, learn and grow together

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

This half term in our topic 'Why did elephants live in Leamington Spa?', we learn all about the history of Leamington and the elephant trainer Samuel Lockhart who was born in Leamington. History is a strong focus in this topic as we consider how Leamington Spa has changed over history and the importance of Queen Victoria in becoming a Royal town. In geography, we will look at our locality in Harbury compared to Leamington thinking about the differences in villages and towns. In design and technology, we will look at simple mechanisms to create moving circus scenes that might be found in a pop up book. Our text to support our writing is 'Erica's Elephant' by Sylvia Bishop. 

Children in Year 2 have made a great start on this topic both with their learning in school and at home.
